Washington wines, 2012’s weather made great grapes

Washington wines of 2012

Washington state’s 2012 had more rain than normal but there was a legendary “dry spell” that made headlines. The period of dryness extended from late July through early October which, conveniently enough for us lushes, is the exact period wine grapes get good and tasty.

The 2012 Washington wine harvest is expected to be spectacular. This from the Bellingham Herald:

 “Two positive aspects of cool nighttime weather were very apparent in the grapes at harvest, these being high acid and deep color. Another result was longer ‘hang time,’ particularly in white varieties like Chardonnay, leading to more tropical and citrus notes with the bright acid normally associated with more herbaceous flavors. One thing the 2012 vintage will not be is boring.”

The experts says buh-bye fruit-forward Washington wines so we say drink up.

3 days left to live – Go whale watching



Since the world is coming to an end this Friday, we thought we’d spruce up your Bucket List before the impending Mayan Apocalypse.

Our Tuesday suggestion – Whale Watching. Free your inner Willie.

It so Pacific Northwest but you rarely, if ever, let yourself go on a whale watch, right? Work, traffic and life happen and you look up and PUFF, you miss out on the chance to witness one of the most beautiful experiences nature can offer.

Play a little hooky and live like these are your last 3 days of existence.

Seattle.gov has plenty of whale watching options.
