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.

Washington Wine Favorites of 2005

The end of the year is near and it's time to reflect. We had so many wonderful wine experiences, it's hard to pick our favorites. I guess our trips to Walla Walla with Bob and Kathy Tovey and Jayne Cathcart were at the top of the list. Our dinner with a great bunch of people from Poncho at Mistral was memorable, as was our French country duck dinner with our friends Roger and Doreen Rose.
