In todays episode, Shelley and Phil are reminded of how much MORE Sommelier’s know about wine than the rest of us! Sam Lange, the Sommelier at Beverly’s Restaurant at The Coeur d’Alene Resort, is our guest, this week and he nails a blind taste of a surprise wine we brought for him. He also brings three incredible Zinfandel’s in honor of International Zinfandel Day, describes how they needed to pivot during a recent wine dinner and lobs up a perfect opportunity for us to mention the upcoming Apple Cup episode. Oh, and we added one more level to our Wine Time Fridays rating system!

The Social Web Wine Word of the Week – Astringent
Astringent describes a rough, harsh, puckery feel in the mouth, usually from tannin or high acidity, that red wines (and a few whites) have. When the harshness stands out, the wine is astringent.
