Page Cellars

We stopped by Page Cellars in Woodinville again last weekend and could not decide which wines to buy because they were all incredibly good quality. We ended up purchasing the outstanding 2004 Limited Edition Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, which is robust with plenty of fruit  and balanced by velvety soft tannins. We also took home another bottle of Page’s signature wine, 2004 Preface — a blend of 90% Cab and 10% Cab Franc, which I’ve written about in previous posts and is still a favorite.

But it was a tough choice because we also loved the 2003 Libra da Carta and the two Syrahs from Page Cellars — the 2004 Syrah from Columbia Valley and the recently released 2005 Lick My Lips Syrah. Great name, eh?

Page Cellars was packed last Saturday, but it felt more like a wine bar than a tasting room. People didn’t just stop by, have a few sips and leave –they hung around, chatting to each other and to the engaging owner, Rothelle Page, who was smiling broadly as she poured tastes non-stop to the welcoming crowd of wine enthusiasts. We’re looking forward to going back again soon — hope to see you there.

Cheers!
