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.

Correction: 2004 Palouse "Eclipse"

I mistakenly reported that six percent Petit Verdot put the zip in this wine probably because I am so used to Petit Verdot being used for this purpose in Bordeaux style blends. But true to the Northwest experimental spirit, George Kirkish actually used some of his fabulous Petite Syrah for the same purpose with a similar effect. By the way the half bottle we sampled tonight had already thrown some sediment, so despite George's motto - smooth, round and voluptuous, he apparently isn't afraid of a little hair on the chest.
