Getting Some Love From Wasington

Wasington State has become home to some of the finest wine country in the United States. Recently, it was revealed that "Cab is King" in Washington just as it is here in Napa: Cabernet is now the number one selling varietal in the state. 

So, we were thrilled recently when the noted Washington Wine Blog reviewd two of our Napa Valley Cabernets and added them to their noted, 90+ Point wines. Here's the review in its entirety:

                                                                     

Growing up I was a huge Seattle Supersonics fan I would go to nearly every home game during the glory years of Shawn Kemp and Gary Payton. The Houston Rockets, one of their main rivals, drafted a relatively untested center named Yao Ming in 2002 with the first pick in the NBA draft. Yao became an instant sensation and one of the best players in the league, until retiring after a series of injuries in 2011. That was the year that he launched Yao Family Wines.

Yao Family Wines sources from a host of great Napa Valley vineyards. The grapes are fermented and then aged up to 18 months in 100% French oak barrels. Only the best lots were used in the final blend. I was very impressed with their new release wines. Their flagship wine in particular, the 2014 Yao Family Wines Cabernet (WWB, 92) was dense and muscular, showing wonderful and generally intoxicating dark fruit flavors. This massive wine will cellar marvelously for 15 years or more. Here are the great new release wines by Yao Family Wines:

2014 Yao Family Wines Cabernet - The 2014 Yao Family Wines Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 3% Cab Franc and 2% Petite Verdot. It is a wonderful showing from this estate which brilliantly showcases this hot vintage. This excellent Cabernet wine opens with black olive aromas with creme de cassis, mocha, tar and hints of black plum. There are rich flavors of creme de cassis, anise, black cherry cough syrup, black raspberry and coffee grounds. This has a wonderful plush mouthfeel and shows gorgeous range of flavors and aromatics. Drink 2018-2030- 92

2014 Yao Family WInes 'Napa Crest' Red Wine - The 2014 Yao Family Wines 'Napa Crest' Red Wine, is a Cabernet dominant blend (63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, and 12% Petit Verdot) that shows beautifully without a decant. This wine begins with aromatics of red currant, red cherry, anise, dill and rose petals. There are flavors of anise, mocha, creme de cassis, black cherry and black raspberry. Drink 2017-2027- 90

Thank you for your informative piece. The full crop of grapes was recently prepared to harvest and the principal ice will come one week from now. What are its chances of survival?

دائما نلاحظ وجود رائحة كريهه تنبعث من الثلاجة لذا علينا أن نجد طريقة تضمن الحفاظ على رائحة الثلاجة منعشه فى كل مرة نقوم بفتحها ,فللتخلص من الروائح داخل الثلاجة كل ما عليك وضع قطعة او قطعتين من الفحم حيث يتمتع الفحم بتركيبة تجعله يمتص الروائح ,ويتم تبديل قطع الفحم كل شهرين على الاكثر او اذا لاحظتى عودة روائح غير مرغوب فيها قبل انقضاء هذه المده ,وذلك سيضمن لك اختفاء هذه الروائح من ثلاجتك الى الابد .

مع كثرة الشركات المصنعه للثلاجات اصبح التنافس بينهم شديد فى تطوير الثلاجة من كونها عبارة عن صندوق لتبريد الاطعمة الي تكنولوجيا تحافظ على الاطعمة كما لو كانت طازجه فى الفتره الاخيره تم ابتكار تكنولوجيا جديده تدعى بـ بلازما كلاستر وهذه التقنية تقوم بتنقية وتنظيف الهواء كما تنظفه الطبيعه دون اي تدخل بشري ,فهذه التكنولوجيا تصدر ايونات مشحونة بشحنة موجبه واخرى سالبه غير مستقره فعلى الفور تحيط بها جزئيات المياة فى الهواء لتنقيته ... لكن ما فائدة هذه التقنية داخل الثلاجة ؟ هذه التقنية تعمل نقاء الهواء داخل الثلاجة وبالتالي تمنع تكون الوائح والعفن على الاطعمة خاصة الاطعمة الطازجه والحفاظ عليها اطول فتره اطول .
