BEAVERTON JUST GOT A NEW STEAKHOUSE! Carlos Cortes, the owner of the popular and authentic Mexican restaurant Casa Lola saw the demand for a steakhouse in fast-growing Washington County. He recently opened Grill68 Steakhouse and has already gained traction and earned some loyal customers in just a short time.

As far as appetizers go, the Coconut Shrimp is so good, you may be tempted to immediately get another order on your own tab. In keeping with our Washington Wine theme, our starter wine will be NV Domaine Ste. Michelle Brut, Columbia Valley Sparkling Wine. And our Chairman loves a good steak, so you won’t be disappointed!

If you still have room, top off the dinner with their classic New York Style Cheesecake or the Grilled Peaches. Some of these wines were near $100/bottle at release. So this event will be a great bargain for those who get to attend.

Starting with Pepper Bridge Cabernets vertical comparing the effects of different vintage climates on the same grapes. Then a Beresan horizontal comparing a 100% Cab from their Cobblestone Estate Vineyards (60% Yellow Jacket and 40% Wallser Vineyard) to the Stone River Red blend which is 50% Cab, 20% Syrah, 15% Cab Franc, and 15% Merlot.

Some of our members attend the big Annual Charity Auction at the Walla Walla Country Club. About 10 years ago, our overwhelming favorite was the 2005 Hence Cultivar. It is 56% Cab, 36% Merlot, and 8% Syrah. A real treat!

The 2002 Basel Cellars Lewis Vineyard Reserve Columbia Valley Cabernet was aged for 30 months in New French Oak. The toasted oak gives a hint of Whiskey Barrel alongside the Chocolate Covered Cherries.  A monumental wine for those who like to indulge themselves in the finer things in life. Then compare it with 2002 Pepper Bridge Cabernet!

Finally, Greenbank Farm started planting Loganberries in the 1940’s. It eventually became the largest Loganberry producer in the US. A housing development was proposed for all 522 acres in 1995.  A complex partnership of the Port of Coupeville, Island County, and the Nature Conservancy purchased the farm and continues organic farming.
