Meet Rob Griffin and Sample His Wines January 20th, 2007

Saturday, January 20th, 2007, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

This is your chance to meet Rob Griffin, winemaker and owner of Barnard Griffin Winery. Rob will be speaking at the Ivory Jazz in old downtown Kennewick, Washington, upstairs in the Roxy building. Rob has been making wine in Washington state for 30 years, don't miss this chance to listen to him share his thoughts on our favorite subject - wine.

While Rob speaks, you will be able to enjoy five pours of Barnard Griffin wines, and then enjoy live jazz music after 8:00 pm ($10 lets you sample all five wines and includes the cover for the live music, a nice bonus). Yours truly will be pouring at this event so say "cheers" when you stop by. We'll be pouring, 2004 Tulip Merlot, 2004 Reserve Merlot, 2005 Tulip Cabernet Sauvignon (new release), 2004 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon and 2005 Semillon - excellent choices!

Ivory Jazz, 101 West Kennewick Ave, Kennewick, WA 99336
Phone: 509.585.8877


update: The event went very well. They sold out all 85 seats before we started pouring. Unfortunately some of my friends showed too late to enjoy. We poured all of our wine within the 2 hours alloted. Music began just after 8 pm, so we settled down to enjoy music and more wine. Highly recommended if you enjoy live jazz and great Washington wine.

Chateau St. Michelle, Indian Wells, 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon

Good Wine, Happy Camper Fall is settling on us quite rapidly. Today, our sunny afternoon was framed by ominous dark clouds lurking on the horizon north of us. It‘s unsettling how quickly the cool weather descends on SE Washington. That touch of autumn sunshine put me in the mood for grilling steaks tonight. I‘ll embrace the sun when I can. But, what good is steak without wine? On my way home, I grabbed a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon. On a whim, I bought a wine I would not usually purchase; it was priced on sale for less that $15. My expectations were not high for the wine, I was just hoping for something palatable. Chateau St. Michelle Chateau St. Michelle, is a Washington winery - an Eastern and Western Washington winery. The St. Michelle winery and tasting room is located in Woodinville, Washington, just across lake Washington from Seattle. However, this wine is made in Patterson, Washington, from Columbia Valley grapes (Indian Wells series) at their attractive Columbia Crest

My Favorite Recipe | Flourless Chocolate Torte

Satisfying those chocolate cravings. My Instagram followers have seen me post photos ( @williampollardjr ) of my favorite dessert for over a year. Possibly, I've posted the original recipe to Instagram. If you ask, I usually do. After success and failures, I've learned that this dessert does not always deliver desired results.

Confiding with my wife, she gave me a tip that finally nailed this recipe down. I'm happy to share this recipe with modifications. It's truly a lovely dessert. My favorite. Enjoy responsibly. Just out of the oven flourless chocolate torte. Recipe: Flourless Chocolate Torte An easy recipe to follow. You will need an oven, mixer, spring form pan and a double boiler. While you can eat this torte warm, I prefer to let it cool down and refrigera
