The Seattle urban wine scene has been gaining some serious momentum over the past several years. What started as a small group of wineries banding together in South Seattle to promote their wines has grown to a collection of about 30 wineries within the greater Seattle area.

Oregon with a French Accent: Résonance from Louis Jadot
The Resonance Vineyard has been one of the Willamette Valley's gems for some time. It is perhaps less well known than places like Shea or Temperance Hill,  owing to its small size, but it has long produced wines of intensity and focus and has overtime becom...

It is perhaps less well known than places like Shea or Temperance Hill, owing to its small size, but it has long produced wines of intensity and focus and has overtime become synonymous with the name Peter Rosback ...

Can't Knock the Hustle... Jasper Sisco
Jay Z said a lot of things that rhymed in the track Can't Knock the Hustle, but most appropriately he said "I sip wine and spit vintage flows, but y'all don't know... you can't knock the hustle." Justin Paul Russell rhymes with hustle. Coincidence? I don't ...

Forty is the age when men make really bad financial decisions that involve over-priced sports vehicles. I'm not really sure what drives that, I bought an expensive bicycle instead when I turned forty just last year. But what I've found about being forty, (I just turned 41) is that you're only as ...

Syrah Doctrine: Tenet Wines
Washington state has long been a hotbed for Syrah. A wine that the industry will tell you they have a tough time selling. It is perhaps a blessing and a curse then that Washington seems to make the best Syrah in the New World and perhaps outside of certain ...
Washington state has long been a hotbed for Syrah. A wine that the industry will tell you they have a tough time selling. It is perhaps a blessing and a curse then that Washington seems to make the best Syrah in the New World and perhaps outside of certain special pockets in the Rhone Valley, ...

Perfect 10s: A Look Across the Valley and Vintage from Willamette Valley Vineyards
The 10s were 10s they said, somehow, through all of that.    The 2010 vintage in Oregon was tough, it was a year for the birds if you remember, a cool vintage, rainy and then there were those damn birds.  In the Willamette Valley, in 2010 people were a bit ...
The 2010 vintage in Oregon was tough, it was a year for the birds if you remember, a cool vintage, rainy and then there were those damn birds. In the Willamette Valley, in 2010 people were a bit on the nervous side come harvest, but not because of the condition of the fruit, it was damn near ...

Don't Sleep on John Grochau and Grochau Cellars
I don't know if Dee Snider is still a live, but come on man. For the love of God, those eyebrows look like hell. The "rockstar winemaker" concept makes me want to vomit in my mouth, by the way. I may be alone at this party, but I doubt it. Unfortunately the...
