Seattle Wine Blog

This blog is dedicated to commentary on all aspects of wine, especially short entries to help you find the best wines without the usual hype and spin. These are my frank, independent opinions, usually based on tasting wine at a public event, off the shelf or at the winery.

Do you love wine? Did you love Sideways? Are you new to wine? Tired of tedious, tendentious wine writing? Tired of "lead pencil, cassis, and black fruit"? In my thirty years of wine experience, I have tasted lots of wine, written about wine, and travelled the wine country of the world. There are so many delicious wines, it is hard to keep track of them all and it is difficult to pick them out from the duds on the supermarket shelf. I hope this will be a forum where we can share our "finds" whether they are best buys(under $15), special buys($20-$30), or reserve wines to lay away in the cellar($30+).

    I do love Sideways although, unlike Miles, I enjoy Merlot and Cab-Merlot is especially a varietal I enjoy. Am curious about what, if any, Cab-Merlot you recommend, especially any Washington wines in particular.

    I love Merlot, too, despite Miles' soliloquy to the contrary. Virtually all Bordeaux, of course, are Cab/Merlot Blends. Try Hogue, Claar or Barnard Griffin Cab/ Merlot.

    Can you recommend some high end Washington State Merlot blends?

    Try Terra Blanca Onyx. At $40-$50 a bottle it it is not cheap,but it will really wow you.
