Not For The Faint Of Heart – Episode 106


Red Blends is a fun category on the show, as there’s an element of the unknown, which leads to very interesting places.  The stars didn’t disappoint, as we went someplace never charted before that will only be known as “The Number Two Incident.”  And then, we end up in the barnyard.  The GOOD barnyard.  You’re just going to have to watch this innocently unfold, and we guarantee even the most grown-up of viewers will smile over this one.   The wine was delicious, and so were this episode’s Twitter hash tags:
