Dramatic setting at Kiona Winery on Red Mountain.

We finally had a break in the clouds this afternoon, just in time for the Kiona release party. One of the pleasures of living in the heart of Washington wine country is the big sky. Sometimes I feel as if I could loose myself in all that openness.

JJ Williams invited me to attend this release party, social media works friends, so I stopped by today and enjoyed the first taste of the just released 2010 Estate Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. Yummy. JJ and his wife Molly were wonderful hosts. Molly attends culinary school in Seattle and was responsible for the wonderful food. As a bonus, they were pouring their 2004 Estate Red Mountain Cabernet from a magnum. It was a treat to compare both vintages side by side.

2010 Estate Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon: Very good at opening, smoky perfume and candied nose, good structure and play of cherry, a bit tart, hey it's young. This wine is ready for food today and suitable to cellar for at least 10 years. Great showing for a new release.

2004 Estate Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon: You can see a bit of age in the color of this wine, aromas of dried cherry, sage and thyme with gentle spice on the elegant finish. Drinks focused, it's aging well and a pleasure to drink today. Drink me sweetly without food.

Kiona wine on the patio, there's more than just red wine to enjoy.

Take in the glorious summer view while sipping delectable Red Mountain wines. You still have time to stop by Kiona Vineyards on Red Mountain, they will be open Saturday, June 22nd for day two of the release party. Stop by between 4 pm - 7 pm to party and enjoy Kiona wines.

My Favorite Recipe | Flourless Chocolate Torte

Satisfying those chocolate cravings. My Instagram followers have seen me post photos ( @wild4wawine ) 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 refrigerate it

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

The Ministry of Time/El Ministerio Del Tiempo History is under threat. Someone is attempting to alter the past. 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. And we get to go along for the thrilling ride. I’m changing up things today by recommending my favorite Spanish TV series. I found it accidentally, now I'm hooked.
