Good to be back after a long hiatus! Last summer, we toured the many wineries around Lake Chelan. There more than a dozen wineries in that new AVA alone, and it’s only been official since 2009!
So, what else is new? Oh, we updated our blog template and hope you like it! Also, we’ve formally scrapped our wine rating. We’ll still let you know about the tasting notes, price and availability (the important stuff), but we’ll skip the nuances on rating and give you the confidence that we won’t be publishing any reviews for wines that we don’t think have a good value for the price.
Now to the business at hand for this Washington red blend…
Smells like: something earthy, hints of raspberry
Tastes like: Plums, boysenberry
Availability: At the winery, but possibly unavailable
Also, here’s the story behind the name. Sorry for the annoying buzz in these videos! There was a fan nearby.
Sorry we’ve been a little quiet here, but we have good reason! We were married on May 15, 2010 and have taken a brief hiatus (from blogging, not wine drinking) to enjoy the festivities with our families and friends in Indiana and Seattle. Look for more wine posts soon!
We were gifted the 2006 Foundary Vineyards Red Wine from Amanda’s employers who spoke highly of it and thought it was worth a review. It certainly was! I don’t know if I would have picked it up off of the shelf considering its uber-modern, minimalistic label so I’m glad it came to us by recommendation. This Walla Walla wine rocks.
We ran it through our Vinturi aerator (our new standard for wine drinking) and really enjoyed the medium body and robust cherry flavors. If only we knew the blend!
Smells like: Pepper, earthy soil
Tastes like: Cherries at the front, rose at the back
