Fall Line Still a Fave

Fall Line Winery in Seattle has always been a favorite of ours; regular readers of this blog have seen several raves about Fall Line and winemaker Tim Sorenson! So I am always pleased to read about others who feel the same way.

For example, here’s a recent post on Cellar Tracker about 2004 Fall Line Horse Heaven Hills Red by a taster named greenblanket:

“Once again I find this wine to carry an elegant balance between ripe Washington fruit and fine tannin and acidity. The handsome boysenberry and currant fruit is becoming more and more accented by spice and herb. … Tim Sorenson is one of the most talented (and affordable) producers of Bordeaux blends in Washington.”

The 2004 vintage is sold out, but try the 2005 release, which is even better!

Hmmmm, maybe we’ll open a bottle tonight!

By the way, Fall Line and other wineries that are part of South Seattle Artisan Wines (SSAW) are open for tasting this Saturday, December 13, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. Fall Line will be pouring back-to-back vintages, 2005 and 2006, of their three wines.
