Bell's Batch 10,000 label approved!

Bell's Batch 10,000 label approved. No information on the label about the beer. But the back label gives some bad news -- "The last of the "Batch" Series. Looks like 10,000 will be the last one.

Follow up to the #1 of the year....

#1 Wine of the Year in 2009 by The Wine Spectator
2005 Columbia Crest Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve -- Sold out over a year ago.
"Ripe in flavor, with a vivid array of black currant, blackberry, violet, black tea and black pepper aromas and flavors that zoom through to a long, expressive finish. Shows subtlety in the layers of complex flavor against a refined structure. Tannins are present but nicely contained. Best from 2010 through 2015. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 5,000 cases made. –HS"
-- Rated 95/100 The Wine Spectator

Now the amazing 2007 vintage is here, a much better vintage in Washington

2007 Columbia Crest Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve....$33.99
The 2007 has not been rated yet, but the 2007 vintage as a whole in Washington is much better than the 2005 and 2006 vintage.
2005 Washington vintage scored 93 points The Wine Spectator.
2007 Washington vintage scored 95-100 points The Wine Spectator
"Near perfect conditions" -- The Wine Spectator

"Superb fruit from select Columbia Valley Vineyards and a blend of new American and French oak barrel aging offer this Cabernet Sauvignon pronounced cherry aromas and a rich chocolate bouquet. This intense, complex wine presents a well balanced, lingering finish. 5,000 cases made."
