Happy ninth anniversary to Full Pull Wines, an online wine retailer that offers fine wines of the northwest, and other parts of the world, to members of its mailing list.
What an amazing nine years of growth it has been for creator and owner Paul Zitarelli, who has also just released a new book, 36 Bottles of Wine. This easy-reading, fun and educational book provides information about 36 bottles of wine (three a month for a year) and recipes for seasonal meals for pairing.
As a nine-year member of Full Pull’s mailing list, I have long been a fan of Paul’s writing. (He also is the lead wine writer for Seattle Magazine.) Below are some excerpts of his recent Full Pull email about 2015 Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley — “arguably the most decorated bottling in the history of Washington wine.”
