This weekend, some of my coworkers and I had a Girls’ Weekend in Chelan, a lakefront resort community. We were a few hours away at a conference for a good part of the week, so we had decided to spend a bit more time in the sunshine of Eastern Washington before coming home. On Saturday, we went wine tasting and ended up at Lake Chelan Winery.
Tonight Jon and I are enjoying the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon that I purchased that day. On the nose, this wine has robust aromas of stewed plums, tobacco and cloves. You know that it will be a big wine. On the palate, there is more of a ripe blackberry flavor with the tastes of tobacco and cloves. The wine is big, but it has nicely balanced tannins to make it an approachable wine.
Jon was as impressed as I was when he tried it, and was happy with my purchase.
Have you tried any of Lake Chelan Winery’s wines? What did you think of them?
