Puget Sound, Washington

Quilceda Creek

Washington Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

This wine has a deep ruby hue. 👁️

👃🏻 The nose and palate 👄 resemble robust and ripe plum, cassis, candied black cherry, and blackberry bramble, violet, vanilla, nutmeg, coconut, cedar, clove, cigar, mocha, cocoa, and tobacco.

Tannins are soft, velveteen, and fine-grained. Alcohol is high (14.8%). Acidity is present. Structure is sound. The finish lingers.

This Columbia Valley, WA wine is downright delicious!! The kind of wine that could pop and pour now or age for 10+ years. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Depth Cacao Liqueur

Made by a small scale Seattle distillery, flavored with Theo Chocolate cacao nibs. It’s a crème de cacao, a liqueur, a cordial. Clear, smells like grappa or maybe really weak or diluted moutai, so slightly aldehydic nose. Medium sweetness, probably sucrose, pleasant mouthfeel. Very nice flavor, the quality cacao nib profile shows. Some may be put off by the nose, but my partner and I found it highly sippable. Paired well with red pear slices and a homemade cocoa-dusted flourless almond cake with almond yogurt. — 3 years ago

Walla Walla Valley Syrah 2015

I am always eager to uncork a high end Washington Syrah! 😺🍷 I had been cellaring this bottle, the “last man standing” from my visit to the winery a few years back. This bottle did not disappoint. It is full of the rich plum fruits layered over that body so peculiar to Washington Syrah, this sort of pleasant mushroom tinge. I realize that may not sound palatable, but once tasted, it really lights up that “eureka!” center of the oenophile brain; imagine your first tastee if the Rutherford Dust tannic structure. Amaviis among my favorite Walla Walla wineries, and this Syrah is perfect for sipping with honored guests or old friends 😼 — 3 years ago

2018 Clonal Selection 777
Earthy, but not like you’re licking rocks. More like it’s so good you might find yourself hitting the ground after having several glasses

Puget Sound Siegerrebe 2018

Again another super vintage of this wine. Refreshing crisp melon notes and slight mineral aftertones. — 2 years ago

Band of Roses

Washington State Rosé Blend 2018

The minerality of this wine oddly matches the minerality of the island tap water, and has a volcanic odor like the sediment around Chalk Sound. Strange but delightful melding of two completely different places. — 3 years ago

Safe so far. But we have to head back home to what looks like a full lock down. We do have masks, which are, you know... at least something🤞

Reininger Helix

Sangiovese Rosé 2019

Enjoyed this crisp refreshing bottle with my cruise crew moored on the hook in Jarrell Cove in South Puget Sound. Went so well with Souvlaki chicken kabobs, rice pilaf and garlic lemon asparagus 😃 — a year ago

The Velvet Devil Washington State Merlot

“I am not drinking any f#<k*ng Merlot!”
OK go figure, easy drinking wine BUT has surprises. On swirl: rose petal red & thick legs. On nose: Strawberry field near the ocean in time converts to deep Raspberry with hints on baked crumble spices. On taste: Abundance of Strawberry then surprise! Tingling in mouth of cola characteristics followed by hints of oak, leather & ends satisfying length of chocolate syrup. This may sound like a teenager loose in the kitchen but it worked with savoury roast beef🍷

Pretty impressed with this Oregon wine. Easy drink but good flavors — 3 years ago

Naked Wines

Dave Harvey Malbec 2017

This deep ruby wine is rich with blueberry and cassis flavors, with a pleasant, lingering graphite flavor to the finish. This may sound strange, but it is effective in cleansing the palate. This is Malbec in the Bordeaux style, rather than the Latin American, but translated through the gloss of Washington terroir and craft! — 4 years ago
