Arizona Stronghold Vineyards Vertical Malvasia tasting podcast

In this episode, which has been teased about for a while, I finally brought my stash of older Malvasia Bianca bottles from Arizona Stronghold to the winery itself, where Matthew Raica and Kim Musket joined me for a vertical tasting of every Malvasia Bianca vintage made by Arizona Stronghold from 2010 to 2018. How well does Arizona Malvasia age? When does Malvasia peak? What makes for a vintage of Malvasia bianca that lasts? Take a listen and find out.

Greater Than Wines with Gary Kurtz

Gary has been a fixture in the Wine Monk Podcast for over half of the episodes I recorded, (as well as the sister podcast, The Make America Grape Again Podcast) so I figured it was about time that I actually make him sit in the hot seat for once, and talk about his own label, Greater Than Wines. In this episode, I interrogate Gary while we drink the Red Experiment Number 1, and we talk the origins of the label, the origins of the wine, and future plans for the label.

The Wine Monk: Pinot Noir Blind Tasting

Pinot Noir is a grape that is steeped in mystery and elegance. The unbilled co-star and arguable protagonist of the film 'Sideways,' Pinot Noir has long had a cloak of mystery surrounding it. Pinot has always been a cult favorite. A while back, I did a tasting of Villa Maria wines with Snooth Media, and I wondered just exactly how New Zealand Pinot stacked up to the rest of the world. Could it stand on par with Burgundy, or Oregon? I decided there was really only one subjective way to find out: inflict a blind tasting upon myself and some of my friends and coworkers. Included in this blind tasting are bottles from Oregon, Sonoma, Burgundy, Arizona, and New Mexico, alongside the aforementioned bottle from Taylor's Pass Vineyard. It's the Pinot Patrol, this time on the Arizona Wine Monk.

Salvatore Vineyards 2014 Sangiovese vs. Brunello di Montalcino

In this episode of the Arizona Wine Monk podcast, Elizabeth Krecker and I sit outside on a starry night and drink the 2014 Salvatore Vineyards Sangiovese alongside the 2012 Licini Brunello di Montalcino. Both of these bottles were of equal value and from small, pocket-sized vineyards. Hope you enjoy! Interestingly, Licini is one of the few pre-phylloxera vineyards remaining in Italy. As Elizabeth excitedly messaged me later, after we recorded: Cody, I totally stumbled onto this jaw-dropping information about Lisini today while studying for a test. Believe me, I'd hunted for information about Lisini before our podcast, but never saw this. Don't know if there is any way to record an appendix to our podcast (Arizona Sangiovese vs. Brunello di Montalcino), but this might be well worth adding in some way before it is published...No wonder this wine was impossible to find on the internet! With just 1/2 hectare of vines planted, this is a tiny, Arizona-sized vineyard. An even more perfect ...

Podcast: Sand-Reckoner Sangiovese Pet-Nat with Isobel Luna

In this podcast, I drink the Sangiovese Pet-nat from Sand-Reckoner with Isobel Luna, harvest hand and tasting room wine slinger for Sand-Reckoner! This delicious sparkling rosé is pretty fantastic, and you can listen to us gush about this wine, and geek out over the oldest method of making sparkling wines in this recording. I have no idea if there are any bottles of this wine left in the tasting room, but I highly recommend grabbing a bottle of the Sangiovese Pet-Nat as soon as you possibly can.

Petit Sirah XM from the Southwest Wine Center: Part 2

Ever wonder about the rules of cigar and wine pairing? (or if there are even any rules?) I've been getting into cigars lately, so I have. In Part two of this two-part series, we are exploring cigars and cigar pairings with wine using the Petit Sirah XM from the Southwest Wine Center. This episode focuses on pairing the wine with a few cigars, as well as which pairs more with a late harvest sweet wine from the Loire Valley. The cigars used in this podcast are the Leaf by Oscar Maduro, the Partigas Serie D, the Guerrila Warfare, and the Atabey. Enjoy!

In Part one of this two-part series, we are exploring cigars and cigar pairings with wine using the Petit Sirah XM from the Southwest Wine Center. This episode focuses more on the wine itself; part two will focus on direct pairing with the cigars we have selected for this vintage. We also finish off the Iapetus Tectonic, from Vermont, which was the focus of Episode 15 of the Make America Grape Again Podcast, which you should also check out.

Arneis: Italy vs. Arizona

In this episode, my friend Megan Coscia and I sit with two bottles of Arneis; a dry, aromatic white wine. The grape is originally from the Piedmont of Italy, where the name translates to "little rascal" in a local dialect. We sit, comparing a Piedmont Arneis to one from the high deserts of Willcox, to talk about some of the differences between Old and New World styles of wines and winemaking, and to see just how Arizona compares to the Motherland of this fun, unique, geeky white grape.

The Podcast of Pain

This is a bit of a silly podcast, where Gary and I decided to torture ourselves with hot sauce and (sometimes bad) wine pairings. The pain was the name of the game. Cringe with us in... THE PODCAST OF PAIN. The photo has nothing to do with it, other than Gary is holding two things that are pointy and can be used for pain.
