#6 Nick Zentner

I call Nick the Neil deGrasse Tyson of geology because he makes the subject easy to understand as well as educational and fun. In this episode we discuss one piece of the puzzle as to why Eastern Washington is such a great place to grow grapes...the Missoula Floods!

So about the wine I was drinking for the interview...

Gordon Estates 2013 Block 3 Merlot 

Winemaker's notes:

"This wine opens with a nose of brooding fruit, spice and subtle leather. The palate expands with flavors of blackberry, currant and black cherry followed by delicate herbs and savory spice. The body is well-structured with medium acid and well integrated tannin."
