Like A Virgin, Not Really – Episode 105


It’s time for another Malbec show, and this variety really is a treat.  There’s so much of this variety now being made across the Northwest, and by the end of tonight’s show we accomplish two major feats!  First, you’ll have the names of two locally made Malbecs, and second, there’s one less Malbec virgin on the panel.  Losing your virginity has never been this…well…maybe you should fill in the right word.   The wine was delicious, and so were this episode’s Twitter hash tags:
