I’VE GOT A SPONSOR! The Wine Spies, for some bizarrely unknown reason, decided to sponsor the podcast! So the day has finally come where I can bathe myself in free wine while a naked Anne Hathaway makes it rain with Ben Franklins (hey, it’s my fantasy). To keep my new lifestyle going, you need to go to The Wine Spies, sign up, and get emails on all the amazing deals on superb wines they offer. You’ll even get $10 off your first order if you use the link www.winespies.com/pairswithlife. If you want to learn more about the wine I’ll be featuring each week, check out What I’m Drinking on the Pairs with Life website. And while I wait for Anne to arrive, the kids convinced me to let them get a new hamster, and I have thoughts on this. I won’t ask Anne about it, because you don’t want to do something like that to a fantasy.

The 2016 Altocedro Gran Riserva Malbec es muy loco, but in all the good ways. To start, Altocedro harvests from 70-year-old vines from a 107-year-old vineyard. Not unusual, especially for Mendoza malbec. BUT, then they take the harvested Malbec in whole clusters and barrel co-ferment with 4% Semillon in French oak.
