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.

Poncho Wine Auction

Running into Tom Captain at WACAP, reminded me of the Poncho Wine Auction this past October 15th. Tom and Dan McCarthy did a terrific job as Co-Chairs of the auction which raised a huge sum for the arts. It was held at the Olympic Four Seasons where the food was very fine, indeed, and you could bring wine from your own cellar with no corkage fee. I brought a 2002 Canon de Sol Syrah, a wonderful wine made by Charlie Hoppes for winery owner Victor Cruz.This wine has developed lots of character since we first tasted it two years ago. That's why it can be so interesting to buy a case of wine or at least several bottles. Then you can follow the wine's evolution over time.
