It is a dark and windy night in Sedona. The wind rattles and shakes the walls of the yurt. “Mourvèdre,” it whispers. You pull out glasses and three bottles.It is a dark and windy night in Sedona. The wind rattles and shakes the walls of the yurt. Your friend Robin reaches into her cold pack. “Mourvèdre,” she whispers. You pull out the 33 Degrees Mourvèdre, and a Bulgarian Mavrud. “It is time for the ritual,” you reply. “Bring forth the glasses!”  Her husband shakes his head.

Welcome to a special podcast with my friend Robin Black, a photographer and wine blogger from California.  In this podcast, we compare a Paso Mourvèdre with one from Arizona… and a Mavrud from Bulgaria, which some wine folk believe is actually a clone of the Rhone and Spanish staple, brought to Bulgaria by the Romans. We also compare a California Kerner with one from Alto-Adige! Take a listen!
