Hello. Here’s the second episode of the podcast I’m hosting for Wine Enthusiast, What We’re Tasting. It’s a look into Central Coast Syrah. Now when you think of California wine, of course Napa and its iconic Cabernet get the lion’s share of praise. So it was great to speak with Matt Kettmann, who is a guru when it comes to the wines of the Central Coast.
What do we discuss? Whoa we cover a lot of ground
- Natural wine (“Natty with Matty”)
- The lighter side of Syrah
- Chillable reds
- Joyous wines
- Tips for cellaring
- The Santa Cruz Mountains
- Matt’s all-time favorite bottle
- Finally, garage drinking
Have a listen:
