I certainly made a good decision when I picked the Hollywood Schoolhouse area for my wine tasting on Sunday. What great weather! Anywhere with a patio was the place to be on Sunday. I managed to get a parking spot in front of Mazatlan Restaurant and headed over to Airfield Estates. I think of the two wines being poured I like the Spitfire the best. I also made a stop in at Goose Ridge for a splash of Vireo which has nice flavors of blackberries, cherries, and cedar. After lounging in the sun for a few minutes to drink my wine I walked down to Hollywood Hill Vineyards. I already loved Steve’s Viognier and it was perfect for drinking out on their patio. I loved the Malbec! I had not tasted it before and was very impressed. Nice spicy flavors and lots of fruit. I really wanted more but I had to pace myself. On over to Brian Carter Cellars where Brian himself talked about his Tuttorosso, super Tuscan style blend. This is one of my favorite wines of his. He did tell us about the upcoming release of Abracadbra Rose which should be in June. I’m anxiously awaiting a chance to taste that. I bravely crossed through the main roundabout without any trouble to get to J. Bookwalter and I really enjoyed their Riesling. I seem to have gravitated to the white wines as it got warmer. My last stop was in the Hollywood Schoolhouse to taste NW Totem Cellars. I went for the Salish, a dry blend of Riesling and Viognier which was very refreshing. I did finish up with my favorite Late Harvest Viognier which has flavors of pear, tropical fruits, and a touch of honey.
