Eliseo Silva 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon

A Tasty Washington Cabernet Sauvignon

When I broke the seal on the screw cap, there was an instant aroma of dark fruit, jammy, and blueberry on the nose. Immediately appealing. On my first taste, I got gobs of fruit in the mouth, with a dry and tart blueberry finish, not a monster finish, but very pleasant.

Two hours later, now there's a whiff of dark earth and candied fruit, reminds me of those cherry suckers dentists always used to have (red was my favorite when I was a kid) and there's a hint of tar residue. I like how the wine has changed. The fruit now rolls around on the back of my tongue and tickles my ears. Tasty.

This wine sure puts me in mind of a Syrah blend. As I already noted, it's tasty.

This is my second Eliseo Silva wine. Last year, I enjoyed the Eliseo Silva 2005 Syrah. The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon is just as good.

My advice is go cook up some steaks or burgers and crack open some Eliseo Silva 2005 Cabernet - it's ready to drink now. If you crank it open early, you can save it for a late night by the fireplace (four hours later I'm getting a little licorice on the finish - tasty). On day two, this wine was at least as good as on day one, maybe even better. Go find out on your own.

Purchased this wine locally on sale for $7.99!

This has to be the best Washington wine value available, except for the Eliseo Silva 2005 Syrah, which is also amazing, awesome, fantastic and wonderful. You can tell I like them both.

Eliseo Silva is made by Frank Roth of Tagaris Winery in Richland,WA,

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. With some effort, I've figured out why, and the remedy. Yes, I've been gently tweaking the recipe. Adjusting ingredients. Modifying and streamlining the process. With mixed 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
