Cheers, Chin-Chin, Salute! The sound made by the twisting of a cork, followed by a loud pop and the crackling of effervesce means there is a celebration to come, christening an important moment and memory’s to be made.   Significant occasions warrant a significant bubbly selection, here are a few notes to help you make your selection: Spumante is Italian sparkling wine, means “foamy” which can refer to all sparkling Italian wines, tends to be sweet. Presseco is an Italian sparkling dry white wine made from Grera grape primary grown in the Presseco region of Italy. Brut is a term used sometimes for the driest sparkling wines which means it has less sugar than those labeled extra dry. Champagne is a wine producing region in the far north of France near Paris.   Though used as a term to describe sparkling wine, true Champagne is aged longer than sparkling wine so can be dryer in taste. The most prestigist brand of Champagne Don Perignon is produced by Moet & Cha
If you are driving along Highway 101 past Port Angeles Washington and you see this sign…. STOP!  You will find the most unexpected fantastic wine lineup and experience.  Not just because Harbinger Winery is such a random out of the way place, but from their wide variety of wines offered which all have great fruit and depth of flavor. Starting from their White Table Wine, to their poplar Dynamo Red Blend, a wonderful Malbec, my favorite Sangiovese with rich rustic flavors, to the ever so surprising Blackberry Bliss. Check out their website for their wines and great pairing ideas. Cheers! Denise
  Merlot - Cabernet Sauvignon - Chenin Blanc I’ve recently enjoyed three wines that reminded me of warm spring days on the back deck with good friends, sipping good wine. Olalla Winery produced a 2014 Merlot (Kilted Scotsman – Conner Lee Merlot) – this deep rich inky wine is not like any merlot you have ever experienced.     Each sip is lush, full of flavor and complexity.   I was recently introduced to Caymus Vineyards out of Napa Valley.   Their 2014 and 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is so amazing.   Words fail to describe this deep dark wine.   It is so full of fruit and very smooth on the finish. Because of Denise’s recent research into Biodynamic wines, I tried an organic 100% French Chenin Blanc varietal from the Anjou, Loire Valley region .   It is full of fruit flavor but low in sugar.   I was able to enjoy several glasses with no side effects. There are so many wonderful wines out there today and I look forward to tasting and sharing them with all of you. Cheers, LaDo
