I was glad to see that Fall Line Winery and Januik WineryÂ were among thoseÂ recognized last week by Gene at Seattle Wine Blog. Gene has been traveling around wine country for what seems like months — to Walla Walla, Sequim and San Francisco. You can read all about his adventures and his reviews on Seattle Wine Blog.Â Gene is a wine writer, wine educator and former publisher of the Northwest Consumer’s Wine Guide and in my opinion, his blog is recommended reading.
As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, Fall Line Winery’s 2004 Columbia Valley Cabernet SauvignonÂ is my favorite wine right now. This wine is unique and spectacular — in fact, weÂ enjoyed aÂ bottle of itÂ last night.Â Â It’s a sophisticated blend of 100 percent Cab — in other words, it’s a blend of Cab grapes from three vineyards and well worth the $30 price point. I’ve also written about Winemaker Mike Januik at Novelty Hill Januik. At $40, the Januik 2004 Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is also fabulous.
So a shout-out to Gene for recognizing these fine wineries, which I applaud too. Cheers!
