2007 Kamiak Rock Lake Red Doing Fine

Go find the 2007 Rock Lake Red while you can.

I was lucky to find this bottle last week. Oh yeah, this wine is aging fine. I last reviewed this wine six months ago and the 2007 Kamiak Rock Lake Red is still rocking (July 2010 Kamiak Rock Lake Red Review).

The 2007 vintage greets you with a  gorgeous deep red color and raspbery jam nose. On my first taste the raspberry was very noticeable. After about ten minutes, swirl, swirl, and the flavors shifted to cherry and currant, with cola in the finish. I quite like this wine.

For about $13, there's a lot of enjoyment in this bottle. But wait, the raspberry came back with some chocolate... Yes, I like this wine, it's a "buy me, drink me" wine. I sure did, now it's your turn.

note: Not all wines age at the same pace, and not all wines age gracefully. While it is true some wines do improve with age, other wines will be no better than they are now. It's also true that you cannot forsee how a wine will change from month to month and year to year. I've tasted some vintages over several years, which I'll refer to as "unpredicatble". The Unpredicatables can be wonderful one month and uninteresting the next, and then completely suprise you several months later with their amazing flavor and complexity.

My point? The 2007 Kamiak Rock Lake Red is drinking fantastic NOW. Don't wait, don't sit on it, buy it, share it, gift it and most importantly, drink it now.

If you can’t find this wine locally, go to or You can also call the Gordon Brothers Woodinville tasting room (they make Kamiak) and ask who their Distributor is in your region. The Distributor can tell you which stores carry this wine. Tasting Room Hours: Friday, Saturday, Noon-7PM, Sunday Noon-5PM and by appointment, Phone: (425) 398-9323.

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
