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. "All creative acts must arise out of a specific soil and flicker with a spirit of place" -D.H. Lawrence

Snowbird Alert

Attention all snowbirds in Tucson. Tonight's the night! James Mantone, co-winemaker with his wife, Poppy, will be at Vintabla tonight to present his knockout Rhone style wines such as Syrah and Mourvedre. If you think you don't like Syrah, think again. This is mind-blowing stuff. If you like Cab with steak, you'll love this stuff. If you haven't tasted Syrah before, here's a chance to taste incredibly crafted, elegant, refined Syrah, in a softer style than usual. If you are in Tucson for the big golf event take your group to Vintabla in the Catalina Foothills for a peak experience. Master Sommelier, Laura Williamson, and Chef Bruce Yim, always score better than par.
