Ruby Ruth Rose' Walla Walla Wonderful

Walla Walla was wonderful yesterday. The rain, hail and cool weather only added to the experience. What's going on in Walla Walla??? A lot my friends. My eyes were opened and my palate re-awakened. This is just one of several posts about my great day in Walla Walla yesterday.

Tonight, I'm enjoying Adamant Cellars 2009 Ruby Ruth Rose'

Ruby Ruth has a clear, candy red color, nose is floral/citrus/and not quite cherry or strawberry (rhubarb?) with a whiff of tobacco, fills the mouth, focused up front (lip smacking) again qualities of cherry and strawberry (rhubarb?) some vanilla, as the finish drifts towards the back and roof of the mouth. Heaviest WA Rose' I remember, drinks more like a red wine. Boy that's good. Buy some now before it's all gone.

Devin Stinger pouring Sunday

*FYI: Saturday, we ended our visit at the Walla Walla Wine Incubator. We only visited 2 of the 5 wineries. But what a visit. Devin Stinger of Adamant Cellars was one of the first "new" winemakers to occupy the Incubator, so he has to find another facility soon. His 2009 Ruby Ruth Rose' is crafted Saigne method (first run) AWSOME - definitely the most interesting Rose' I've tasted and unlike other Washington Rose's you'll find. Their Tempranillo was exciting, with a killer finish, yes Tempranillo, and his Bordeaux blend was also KILLER. Every one of his wines, red,white, and blend were excellent. His current case production is approaching 1,000 cases - he has to find a new facility. I wish him luck - I'm keeping tabs on Devin Stinger.

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

In response, a secret government organization is working to protect the sanctity of time. This group is the Ministry of Time. Agents of the ministry, are able to travel to different times and places via a deep well of stairs located in Madrid, Spain. From these stairs, innumerable doorways branch off to different periods of the past. Agents are recruited from other time periods, they work diligently to protect the history of Spain.
