Cowan Vineyards 2005 Estate Cabernet Franc

New to Me Too

Last week I opened a bottle of Cowan Vineyards 2005 Estate Cabernet Franc – and it was even better than I remembered. If you don’t know Cowan Vineyards, then it’s time you did. If you’ve never enjoyed Cabernet Franc, then it’s time you did that too. I like this wine.

I found aromas of mixed berries and spice with gentle oak, following through in the mouth with a great finish – a well balanced wine. Kudos.

Cowan Vineyards
This is a 100% estate grown and bottled wine. While Cabernet Franc is traditionally a blending varietal, here it stands on its own. The reason is obvious, Washington climate, a talented grower and winemaker.

My first visit to Cowan Vineyards in Prosser and my first experience tasting their wines, was during the Yakima Spring Barrel weekend this May. Their tasting room is open 7 days a week 10 am - 5 pm. Definitely worth your time to stop by and taste. I found the staff very helpful and friendly when I last visited. This is a Prosser winery, just off Interstate 82.

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.
