(Yes, we know we’re out of order!) After a week of no power and having to record in a cheesy motel, Shelley and Phil are back in the Wine Time Fridays studio with this weeks episode comparing Shiraz and Syrah’s. The Shiraz is a Penfolds Koonunga Hill and the Syrah is from Jones of Washington, and both are easy to find in the Pacific Northwest. Grab a bottle, pour a glass, pull up a chair and relax with Shelley and Phil. #HappyFriday! #ItsWineTime!
