Winery Tasting Notes
GARRISON CREEK CELLARS 2007 Zinfandel Walla Walla Valley
Zinfandel is a relatively rare variety in Washington vineyards; this 2007 vintage is our second  from our estate vineyard, Les Collines. Our winemaking goal for this wine was to showcase the bright berry fruit that is characteristic of Zinfandels, and then add warm, spicy notes with barrel aging. We aged this vintage in new French oak barrels for 19 months, and then bottled it at the end of May 2009. A year and a half of bottle aging followed, and the resulting wine has a very pleasing, full finish.  

Cases produced: 150

Vineyard: Les Collines
Release date: December 2010
Barrel aging: 19 months new French oak
Alcohol: 15.4% by volume

Winemaker notes: Generous notes of raspberry and strawberry jam in the nose; a medium-full, supple body is balanced by firm acidity, making it a versatile wine to pair with fine meals.

Price per Bottle: $55
Case: $594 (reflects 10% case discount)

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
