I was asked to write this piece for the 2014 Pink Ball in Walla Walla. Huge thanks to Amy Vixie (founder and president of JUGS, a non-profit organization that puts on the annual fundraising event) for the invitation. It was a beautiful event, and I am grateful and honored to have been involved.

I post it today, as the Grand Cardinal Cross graces the skies, as a celebration of life, a reminder to be courageous, to live fully, to love unconditionally. To life.

I came across Trust Cellars on a trip to Woodinville, just outside Seattle in Washington State. They had a small outlet there, although the wine is made in the famous Walla Walla region in Eastern Washington.

I think many of the wines in Washington State, whilst good, are overpriced compared to European counterparts. Partly I think this is due to the smaller quantities of wine made and partly because local consumers are willing to pay high prices for the 'local story'.

…being produced in the warmer areas of Yakima Valley, Wahluke Slope and Walla Walla. Back in California, there's more Petite being crushed nowadays than ever; 2013's crush, of 68,000 tons, was a record (alrhough of course the 2013 crush overall also was a record). To put that into some perspective, the Petite Sirah crush was about one-fourth that of Pinot Noir and one-eighth that of Cabernet Sauvignon, but already exceeds that of Grenache, and is nearly half that of Syrah

March is Washington wine month, and half the month has already passed. So how much Washington wine have you consumed? I got a pretty big head start because I went to the Walla Walla @ Pure Space in late February....

Walla Walla recently, so this was a good opportunity for us to visit with winemakers and taste a number of Walla Walla wines all under one roof.

I'll spare you the laundry list of all of the wines we tasted. However, here are three wines that really grabbed our attention, and I encourage you to give them a try if you have the opportunity.

2011 Waters Winery Loess Syrah, Walla Walla Valley, $ 50

2010 Figgins Estate Red Wine ( Cabernet Sauvignon/ Merlot/ Petit Verdot), Walla Walla Valley

Fjellene's five reds, pair some with lamb

Have 'em with turkey, have 'em with ham

Save them for later, keep them around

You could do that, or drink 'em now.

Sauvignon, drink 'til it's gone

But oh! Those Fjellene wines.

Walla Walla
