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 Cabs for Dad

What to buy the old man for Father's Day? He already has slippers, bathrobe, ties, laptop, and a subscription to 500 cable channels, doesn't want an Ipod and doesn't know what a Nano is. How about something he will really enjoy? Nooo! Not a subscription to the Wine Spectator! Something that will give him pleasure - how about some Washington State Cab - masculine wine for big boys:) I've limited myself to wines that are available in wine shops and supermarkets even if some of the pricier ones are very hard to find. Here are my recommendations:
