Seasons Greetings to all from Ryan, Kimberly, Beau, Tim, and Carol!
Seasons Greetings from Assistant Winemaker Paul Knutzen who had a standing rib roast in the smoker on Christmas day.
Seasons Greetings from Assistant Winemaker Roger Hanson who reminisces about past travels. "The carpet on the wall behind me came from the Central Anatolian Highlands of Turkey, Cappadocia, picked out on our Turkey/Greece trip in 2013. The hat was purchased in Sarlat, France on our trip to the Loire/Dordogne/Southern France in 2015. The scarf was hand loomed just a few weeks ago for me by my wife's cousin who has retired in Pullman".

MCM Superlio Viognier Holiday Focus - Video 3:59 minutes
In this video we tell a bit of the story of this wine and how much we enjoy it. The more we have a chance to open bottles and taste, the more we want to share it with you. An array of floral scents in the bouquet and tropical fruits and melon mid-palate flow into a soft finish.
12.5 % alcohol so we delicate ones can rest easy.

Last Chance for December Special Offer - A Vertical of Dineen Cab - Video 9:12 minutes
We taste and discuss a vertical trio of Cabernet Sauvignon wines from Dineen Vineyard near Zillah, Washington. See our video in the vineyard with Dineen Owner Pat Dineen here.
This month's Special Offer is a tribute to the dominant wine of Bordeaux, Cabernet Sauvignon. As we said in our video above, we think you will appreciate how well this vertical represents the Cabernet from Dineen and how much each vintage shows similar character from this vineyard and particularly, Catherine's Block.

We'd so like to have you join us on this adventure next summer. Rob Rector, the owner of Experi, our travel company on Bainbridge Island, has secured new dates for us to travel to Bordeaux to visit this famous wine region. We are excited plans are falling into place as optimism about 2021 travel increases. If you share our interest in visiting France next summer please let us know.
