50 Shades of Red – Episode 42


There’s a term we use in this episode that we’ve used before; we just took it to new heights this time.  And it was easy to do with the two Syrahs we’re tasting.  Matter of fact, the name itself was a point of discussion.  Do you know the correct term for referring to two or more bottles of Syrah?  One bottle would be a Syrah, two ore more would be Syrahs. Yeah, that may be simple…but you wouldn’t believe who tried to make that a lot harder (Hint: his name is Brian and he hosts Northwest Wine Night).  The wine was delicious, and so were this episode’s Twitter hash tags:
