Savory spread of cheese and charcuterie.

Dramatic setting at Kiona Winery on Red Mountain.


We finally had a break in the clouds this afternoon, just in time for the Kiona release party. One of the pleasures of living in the heart of Washington wine country is the big sky. Sometimes I feel as if I could loose myself in all that openness.

JJ Williams invited me to attend this release party, social media works friends, so I stopped by today and enjoyed the first taste of the just released 2010 Estate Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. Yummy. JJ and his wife Molly were wonderful hosts. Molly attends culinary school in Seattle and was responsible for the wonderful food. As a bonus, they were pouring their 2004 Estate Red Mountain Cabernet from a magnum. It was a treat to compare both vintages side by side.



2010 Estate Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon: Very good at opening, smoky perfume and candied nose, good structure and play of cherry, a bit tart, hey it's young. This wine is ready for food today and suitable to cellar for at least 10 years. Great showing for a new release.








2004 Estate Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon: You can see a bit of age in the color of this wine, aromas of dried cherry, sage and thyme with gentle spice on the elegant finish. Drinks focused, it's aging well and a pleasure to drink today. Drink me sweetly without food.





Kiona wine on the patio, there's more than just red wine to enjoy.

Take in the glorious summer view while sipping delectable Red Mountain wines. You still have time to stop by Kiona Vineyards on Red Mountain, they will be open Saturday, June 22nd for day two of the release party. Stop by between 4 pm - 7 pm to party and enjoy Kiona wines.
