Red Car Boxcar White, In The Station For Tasting (WBW#46)

Kaz and Randy convene at Randy’s hillside ranch to taste their latest entry for this Wine Blogging Wednesday. They taste a 2006 Red Car Boxcar White (sorry, the Red Car website is all Flash-bound and doesn’t include notes on this specific wine), which is a blend of mostly Viognier, with the rest split between Roussanne and Marsanne. They both enjoy it, from the plastic cork to the frizzante to the melons and honeysuckle, despite that neither of them give a score. Dr. Debs would be even thrilled that this White Rhone costs less than $20! (Is that extra credit?)

Then Kaz and Randy go off on a myriad of tangents. It’s what they do.

It’s a ten minute jaunt through their taste buds, have a listen!

    You definitely get extra credit–slightly frizzante, a black cork, and under $20? Maybe double extra credit. Thanks for participating and for the great review. (Good luck with the smoker this summer, Randy!)

    Thanks for thinking of our wines for Wine Blogging Wednesday. We appreciate the plug!

    You made me thirsty for a nice frizzante white. But woe to me the cellar was empty (of fizzy whites that is). I had to settle for a hard cider.

    Looking forward to visiting Kaz’ vineyard!

    Sounds like you had as much fun with your Rhone-style white as I did on this Wine Blogging Wednesday!
