First stop was Gifford Hirlinger, a serendipidous discovery. Loved his wines. Favorites: Merlot, Malbec, Tempranillo......yum... Very nice visit with the winemaker. Then downtown to DaMa. Dawn & Mary rolled out the red carpet, gave us a large table by the window where we ate our feast, tasted their wines and purchased. Cowgirl Cab. There was time for an hour of shopping after. Then to our last adventure, north to Robison Ranch Cellars. Great wine, great prices, charming hosts, Brad & Ruth. Superb day!

June: Wine Divas, Love of Junk and Pam's Viognier tasting

Our 4th wine!

We are honored to be able to have our 4th vintage made by Robert O. Smasne ~ WINEMAKER OF THE YEAR 2013  (by Wine Press NW ). Our 2011 Red Rhone Blend will be a blend of 58% Mouvedre, 28% Syrah, & 14% Grenache. Even though we sold out of the 25 cases last night, Robert said he can make more for us.
We will be bottling it in April and he suggests we lay it down for 1 year (that's what he does with all of his wines). Cheers!
P.S. The Chocolate No-Bake dessert is under "Recipes".
