Episode 32: Oaky notes with a hint of Lord Grantham's jodhpurs

Click Me It’s 11 p.m. on a Monday night and my head is killing me. For the benefit for you people—you people!—I’ve just slogged through a half-dozen bottles of wine, each of which has some tie-in to a celebrity or a hit TV show. 

Why? Because Kristin from New York started it. A loyal listener, Kristin is, and she wrote in to my Fame Fatale podcast, asking whether the new Downton Abbey wines—yes, there are now two wines with Lord Grantham’s front yard on the label—are worthy of anyone, even the downstairs maids. 

So for this week’s episode, I invited Los Angeles sommelier Whitney Adams; Nathan Hazard of the Table Set podcast; and show favorite and Nerd Out cohost Lisa Jenkins to offer their expert opinions. Yes, we sampled the Downton claret, but we didn’t stop there. We also poured a cab by Mike Ditka; a white by the late Paul Newman; an offering from Francis Ford Coppola; and plenty more.

Are any of them worth their elevated price tags? You’ll have to listen to find out...
