This week, Travis and I drink a little red wine and talk about “First Man,” and the Star Wars franchise. Our wine this week is a blend from Bonny Doon Vineyards called Cigare Volante. It’s an American wine inspired by the reds of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, in France. Wines from this area in the Rhone region are consistently ranked amongst the highest in the world. The Cigare Volante is their American cousin, and it’s a worthy addition to the family. Travis likes to invoke the phrase, “versatile as beans.” I don’t know if he means the musical fruit or the character from Even Stevens, but either way, this wine is pretty fuckin’ versatile. As beans.
- Also, you’ll note that Episode 2 now has a theme song. I literally picked up an acoustic guitar and played the first four chords I could think of. It’s too bad there wasn’t a dude in a toga to come smash my guitar against a wall. Also also, we’re hoping Steve, our one and only follower, is recovering from the mumps.
