WWD: BLT from Woodhouse Family Cellars

Last June, I wrote a blog post about BLT Barrel Select, a superb, subtle and structured red blend from Woodhouse Family Cellars. The BLT Barrel Select is 75 percent Cabernet and 25 percent Malbec. But it was only available for sale in Washington state in June for members of Woodhouse Family Cellars’ wine club. The only other place you could find it was at New York’s BLT Restaurants: BLT Steak, BLT Fish and BLT Prime.

A few weeks ago, I found a bottle that I had stashed in the back of our cellar. So we opened it up to have with our spaghetti dinner. It was just as good as I remembered it. Better really, with eight more months on the shelf.

And the good news continues — BLT is for sale again at Woodhouse Family Cellars. We were at a wine club release party last night, and my nephew from Vancouver bought a few bottles. Next time you’re in Woodinville, stop by Woodhouse’s tasting room. You’ll be glad you did!
