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.

Wine Blogger's Weekend -WBC 08 - Live Blogging

Boho - ho ho ho! Pleasant stuff in a box. Eco- friendly? Call Chardonnay $24 box + 4 Bottles
Central Valley A great way to use up the "Lake of Wines" Premium wine in a box? HWP, non-smoking, likes pets and volleyball/

Speed blogging like speed dating? Is it fun? Does it work? Will I marry any of these wines? A nightcap? How would it taste in the morning?

Stood up on our second date!

James David - 2007 Muscat- Citrus nose, pretty dry, more like a gewurztraminer. Sexier than the last one, HWP, too, but spicier and more interesting. This one wears glasses and reads books. A little kinky. A good date.

The Spaniard - Twisted Oak - Carmen plays Twisted Sister- Somehow this hot sexy Spaniard morphed into a young Matron. Pleasant upfront with round fruit, but a tangy twisted tail.

Dark Horse - Will this one be a winner? A long shot? Round, voluptuous, sinful Zin? Hint of unpleasant odors.

Small Vines - 2006 Pinot Noir - For $65, it better good, and it is, but I can get a cheaper date.

2006 Cupcake Vineyards Chardonnay - At $12 it it's an easy wine. A great value! I'll be back for more, but would I want to marry it?

2007 Kanzler Pinot Noir - Barrel sample, not yet bonded - 12 months in oak. For $48 it better be good. HWP, beautiful, centered, but not sexy.

2005 Bink Pinot Noir- Black Ink, At $40, this one merits a second date. I would take this baby to meet Bim. Right up there with my amateur friends . I might even take this one home to meet the folks.

2007 Roussanne Lionheart - Santa Ynez, Warm site - Tastes like an off Chard. Ready for the next date. $30.

2006 Sean Minor Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon - Finally a reasonable date, only $17 a date.
No movies out, no babystitter, no restaurant dinner, no popcorn, no BonBons, Just a bottle of wine and thou. Now, how do I like the wine and thou. A really great cheap date. HWP lots of upfront fruit, easy, luscious, almost voluptuous.

Wine in a box - 2008 Malbec from Argentina - $12 The box is not bad. A good cheap date.

Bonterra - biodynamique - 2004 The McNab Cab/merlot/Petite Syrah blend. I liked this beauty til I heard the price. $45 solemente!

2005 Clos La Chance - Good luck, buddy! Delicious, HWP, great berry fruit. For $30, a great date.

Is it fun? Yes! Does it work? great for new wineries. It was good for us. How was it for you?
