Taste Washington 2015 Strategery (Which by the way is not a word.)

Whenever I'm out in the Yakima Valley I always look to the south side of the river along highway 82 at those beautiful rolling hills and think, "those are the Horse Heaven Hills." And sometimes I even say it out loud, if someone is with me in the car. I suppose it makes me feel smart or informed ...

The Search for Guido: From Craigslist to Red Mountain to Vashon Island
It is perhaps one of the most unusual wine purchases I'd ever made. The guy's Craigslist post said that he had accumulated some interesting and older wines over the last few months and the prices were unbeatable, in my opinion. Late 90s Washington wines, so...
