Reininger Winery, Walla Walla Valley

Taste Washington! 2012 Recommended Wines.

In 1997, Chuck and Tracy Reininger launched their dream – owning a premiere winery in the Walla Walla Valley. Chuck sees himself as an intuitive winemaker with a strong connection to nature. He strives at all times to ensure that his wine is the best that it can be. I can attest to the quality and sheer deliciousness of his wines.  Reininger Winery is on my must visit list.

The Wines – I was so focused on tasting the wines, I neglected to take any photos.

2007 Merlot -  Lot of fruit, the hot sausage I ate before tasting wiped my palate, very tasty, like. 100% Merlot, Pepper Bridge and Seven Hills vineyards, ABV 14.2%, production 1072 cases, retail price $38. Recommended.

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.

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.

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.
