Drinks in Seattle


Westward2

My recent trip to Seattle ended up being more busy than anticipated.  I did not taste much of anything new but the bottle of 2012 Syncline, Subduction Red, Columbia Valley proved rather satisfying.  It is a blend of 28% Mourvedre, 26% Grenache, 23% Syrah, 13% Counoise, 8% Carignan, and 2% Cinsault.  I meant to write down a tasting note but instead I continued to drink the bottle over three nights.  I was finally determined to take my note so I went to pour the final glass from the bottle then realized it was already empty.  Perhaps that is all you need to know, surely Hugh Johnson would approve.

I did manage to have a few drinks with Clark at Westward & Little Gull.  This restaurant, bar, and miniature “grocery store” is still relatively new.  It is located west of the University north of Lake Union literally sandwiched between Northlake Way and the lake.  We sat at the bar watching the cooks prep for dinner service.  From our swivel-seats we could clearly see Lake Union with downtown Seattle as the backdrop.  The wine list is small but edited with diverse selections.  Think Pratsch, Badenhorst, Fontsainte, Correggia, and the local Gifford Hirlinger.

If you are willing to bundle up, you may take your drinks outside to sit around a roaring fire.  This is a stunning location!  You just want to stay there watching the lights of Eastlake, Downtown, and Queen Anne Hill reflecting off of the lake.   I highly recommend you stop by for drinks.
