In this episode, Damien and Jonathan welcome their good friend and sommelier Thomas Klafke to Spill the Truth about the Howell Mountain AVA. This is the the most informative episode to date and might have the best wine ever consumed by the guys while recording. Thomas flew in just to share three estate Cabernet Sauvignons from three different vintages while discussing the nuances of the region in a fun way. The conversation really is an in depth look into the Howell Mountain AVA and the mind of a sommelier, yet it also covers everything from how we got in the business to what we would drink if we were trapped on a desert island. We really hope you enjoy this look into the mind of a somm and thank you again Thomas for sharing some of the best wines ever made in California.
