From James Suckling & Wine Advocate


About TenutaGuadoAl Tasso 2018 Il Bruciato, BolgheriDOC

From Antinori'scelebrated Bolgheriestate TenutaGuadoal Tasso on the coast of Tuscany. The estate has 750 acres of vines in this sun-drenched region that is tempered by the cooling effects of the Mediterranean Sea breezes. The vineyard is at an elevation between 145 and 190 feet above sea level on stony, slightly calcareous soils.


The grapes for this 2018 Il Bruciatoare sourced from a roughly 200 acre area with varying elevations.The grapes were picked by hand and immediately taken to the cellar for scrupulous hand selection prior to destemming and crushing. A blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 15% Syrah aged 7 months in French oak barrels.


James Suckling scored this 93 points saying, "A rich, layered young red with blackberries, plums and chocolate. It’s full-bodied and intense with black-chocolate and hazelnut character. So well crafted. Drink now or hold.


The Wine Advocate scored this 92+ points saying, "The TenutaGuadoal Tasso 2018 BolgheriRosso Il Bruciatois a steal at this price point. Indeed, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah has consistently affirmed its very reputation on the fact that it so effortlessly hits that sweet spot between value and quality year after year. The wine opens to soft, supple fruit with blackberry and blackcurrants backed by spice, leather and tobacco. The aromas are fresh, fruit-forward and very inviting. The sweet succulence of the wine immediately invites a pairing with marinated or barbecued meats slow-cooked over embers. In terms of mouthfeel, Il Bruciatois designed to be approachable and most importantly: food friendly.

Violet's american omakase

Chef William Belickis helms Violet, voted Seattle’s “Best New Restaurant” in 2019. Violet offers a unique “American Omakase” dining experience inspired and influenced by Spanish, French, and Italian cuisine.









“He’s a chef who has been crafting tasting menus from the start—long before such a large number of Seattle’s higher-end places began offering them. And it’s a worthy experience, particularly if you give him carte blanche.”
