Crinkly tannins punctuate well-defined flavors of tobacco-accented cherry and spice, lingering expressively on the full-bodied finish. Drink with something hearty. Best from 2015 through 2020. 260 cases made. –HS
2008 Merlot Seven Hills Vineyard Walla Walla Valley
This vintage marked the 10th anniversary of this downtown Spokane, Wash., partnership that began and remains focused on two of Walla Walla’s top vineyards, and here’s a great example of foresight and patience with an Old World touch. Aromas feature Chukar Cherry, black currant, plums and dark chocolate with stylish herbal notes that include bell pepper. That dark fruit profile moves along to the palate where elegant tannins a brushed with baked brownies.

Kray Van Kirk, singer/songwriter
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Kray Van Kirk is an Alaskan singer-songwriter, delivering performances that the Borderline Folk Club in New York called “…what every singer-songwriter should aspire to.” His warm and intimate concerts on six- and twelve-string guitar have received critical praise and enthusiastic receptions from the house concert circuit to festivals and larger stages. His songs are rich tapestries of myth (The Queen of Elfland, Three Days to England), passionate echoes of the world (A Chorus of Stones, Dust), and a pure expression of the American singer-songwriter (A Medicine for Melancholy, Walk With Me). At the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where many shows receive only a handful of audience members due to the sheer volume of available performances, his room was sold out, leaving some folks sitting on the stairs and a Fringe reviewer to write “the Alaskan singer-songwriter, in his Edinburgh debut, was not the reason I arrived early, but certainly why I stayed late”. Go to his website to listen to his songs and then come down to hear Kray at the cellar on March 13th.
