As many of my friends know, my favorite game after a day of wine tasting is to go, person by person, through a series of questions about what stood out. For me, talking about wine is a big part of the fun. The questions inevitably go like this – What was the wine of the weekend? What was the winery of the weekend? What was the most exciting new winery we visited? What was the biggest disappointment?

For Walla Walla Fall Release 2009, you can see my thoughts on these and other questions at Walla Walla Wine News. Look for a full write-up of the weekend including tasting notes in December.
