In today’s installment of your favorite Internet wine party, we attempt to decipher one of our favorite panelists, laugh at another star who declares herself the “Queen of Tarts,” and manage to taste two delicious bottles of Sauvignon Blanc in the process. We cover a lot of ground in nine minutes! And at the end of the show, you have the names of two more Northwest-based wineries to support. The wine was delicious, and so were this episode’s Twitter hash tags:
