lake chelan has long been a favorite summer destination of my family's. now that our aunt and uncle have a (gorgeous) home there, we frequent the area more than usual. we've discovered the best way to spend Saturdays is to jump from vineyard to vineyard and do what the locals call WINE TASTING. my aunt has become quite the expert in all things Chelan wine, so luckily, i've been able to taste some unbelievable wines.
the favorite, thus far, hails from Karma Vineyards. their 2006 cabernet sauvignon has hints of cherry and black currant and completely wins in my book. i opened a bottle tonight and whoops! there goes my evening. it was THAT good.
check out this family-owned, newish vineyard to the Napa of the Northwest and add this grape to your own good karma.
