On February 10th, I attended the Walla Walla Wine in Seattle—Trade & Media Tasting at McCaw Hall, Seattle, where fifty wineries set up tasting tables in the lobby of the performing arts hall.  The tasting tables formed a large, flattened oval in the center of the hall lobby, which was well-lit by the three story floor to ceiling windows.  Although the wineries offered a variety of wines to sample, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Chardonnay, Viognier, among others, I chose to concentrate on the Cabs.

My favorite, by far was the Brown Family Vineyard's 2017 Cabernet, very solid flavor with well-balanced tannins, blended with 3% Petite Verdot and 1% Malbec.  L'Ecole No 41 2016 100% Cabernet was also impressive with nice, bright highlights and a good finish.  Other wines I enjoyed were the Wooden Canyon Winery 2017 Old Vines Cabernet, the Doubleback from the Bledsoe Family Winery blended with 25% Syrah, and the 2016 J&S Vineyards Cabernet from the Lagana Cellars with 5% Petit Verdot.

Sad news, Taste Washington, which claims to be 'the nation's largest single-region wine and food event' has fallen victim to the Coronavirus Outbreak and has been canceled.  I look forward to its return next year.
