    Give It A Shot - Trader Joe's Platinum Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley 2016

    While they don’t happen every week, when we can do back-to-back podcasts that are connected by a particular theme it is something we enjoy. The thread tying these two items together may not be instantly obvious, but when you look a little closer it becomes very apparent. In our weekly discussion about the items to share this week, Andrew mentioned that he had a bourbon he wanted to share and Keith wanted to stay with the wine theme for at least another week. Fortuitous events were already in motion to tie these two topics together that we were not aware of at the time. The first of the items that we will try this week is the wine portion. The wine we are trying is the Trader Joe’s Platinum Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma Knights Valley. The Platinum Reserve line is the most expensive of their private label wines at $14.99 per bottle and should compare with other wines in $30 to $40 range. Without giving away too much, the bourbon we will try next has a Cabernet component to it as well. If you watch us live on Thursday night on twitch.tv/aboutbeverages (which we highly recommend) then you already knew that. What did we think? What do you think?  Let us know in the comments below or join us live on Thursday nights to give us your feedback while we are live streaming on Twitch.

    AboutBeverages.com Podcast: Give It A Shot - Oak Ridge Winery Three Girls Cabernet 2010

    It is time once again for our "Give It A Shot" podcast where we share with you, our valued listener, something we discovered that needs to be shared immediately.  If you have any ideas for future episodes of "Give It A Shot" or just have a question, you can always send us an email to AboutBeverages@q.com.  The answer to a trivia question you never thought would be asked, "What is the oldest operating winery in Lodi, California?"  Oak Ridge Winery is the answer and they just so happen to have a wine at our tasting table today.  Their 3 Girls Cabernet Sauvignon is only one of over a dozen different brands this family owned and operated winery produces.  Whenever I see wines from Lodi I can't help but think of the song by Creedence Clearwater Revival.  As a preemptive strike against the next question, yes you may hear that song in the video.

    AboutBeverages.com Podcast: Give It A Shot - J. Lohr Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon

    It is time once again for our "Give It A Shot" podcast where we share with you, our valued listener, something we discovered that needs to be shared immediately.  If you have any ideas for future episodes of "Give It A Shot" or just have a question, you can always send us an email to AboutBeverages@q.com.  We take a quick detour from all the seasonal beers we have been having to enjoy a glass of wine.  Today on the show we will be tasting the J. Lohr 2009 Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon.  We have enjoyed this varietal and their Pinot Noir in the past so with any luck this won't disappoint.
