It’s been an interesting weekend.
Yesterday, I went up to Everett to visit a little wine shop called Wicked Cellars. It has a wonderful family ambiance. I met a friend of mine that was doing a tasting of Evening Land wines from Oregon. The wines were good, but it was talking to the people and just hanging out that was wonderful for me. It’s a really nice shop, if you happen to be in the area. While I was there, Tom Douglas happened to walk in to buy some wine. He was in Everett for a book signing across the street.
From there, I stopped at the Kirkland location of the big box store. My good friend Lori was there to visit with me. The 2007 Edouard de Rollat Cabernet was the wine that spoke to me. Lori is a great resource, if you happen upon her there. Chateau Rollat is a winery in Walla Walla that has low production. Every year, they have the winemaker from LaTour come to consult with them. The wine they produce is very nice.
Today was a day of celebration. Celebration of life and love.
I chose the Chandon for a private celebration Peter and I had. A good California methode Champenoise standby.
