Washington Wines — only the good stuff!

Some people have recently asked me why I only write positive comments in my blog about Washington state wine. Surely, they say, there must be some wines in Washington state that aren’t so great. Of course there are. I found a few recently in Yakima that had 15% alcohol. I chose not to write about them.

Why not? Because I’m not a critic. I’m not a wine reviewer. I simply like to share my thoughts about what I consider good wine. And Washington state produces a bounty of good wine.

I don’t mind being called a cheerleader for Washington state wines. There is a lot to cheer about!
