- Tasting Room
"My daughter purchased two cases of your red wine, 2003, 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, for my 70th birthday party in 2006. I am living proof that after eight years the wine is aging much better than I am! We consumed the first case in 2006, and have celebrated each birthday since with a bottle, three bottles left, and each year they get better, so which one of us is aging better? The wine or yours truly?”

This morning the four couples left and headed back to the east coast. We are now taking a deep breath! First, we served the wine as a blinding tasting. They were all very pleased with the wine and found it a delightful accompaniment to the lamb dish that I served. Most guessed it to be a California wine, which may attest to their unfamiliarity with Washington State wines or the feeling that better quality wines in the US come from California. We are working hard to introduce our east coast friends to the wonderful wines we have here! Secondly, they were much impressed with the label. Thirdly, we gave them each a bottle to take home and no one forget their wine! (I have found ties and a few other things, but no wine left behind!). Thank you so much for all your help in making this week a very special one for the ten of us.
