    Default Leonetti, Abeja and Long Shadows Winery.

    Spring release weekend was outstanding in Walla Walla, Wa. Visited
    with many over a 4 day period.

    Stand outs were the Leonetti (I am on the list now), Abeja (ditto) and
    Long Shadows.

    Long Shadows has an interesting concept...each variety has a different
    winemaker partnership. Alan Shuup was formerly of Chateau St Michele
    was responsible for the Antinori-CsM partnership. He has started this
    winery with this in mind...each wine has its own winemaker. I liked
    is Saggi, Sangiovase/Cab blend...it was outstanding.

    Walla Walla has continued to develop in terms of wine and local
    hospitality. Great lodging and restaurants, nightly entertainment on
    weekends.

    Would post notes if I took, but to busy enjoying the wines to post
    specific notes.

    Abeja's been great for a while now. Been buying their cab since the
    2004 vintage. Haven't spent much time with their other wines. Did you
    try their Syrah?

    The Leo is always superb. Longshadows is a relative newbie, but the
    wines are exceptional.

    650 wineries in Washington now. You can pretty much throw a dart at
    the state map and hit something decent. My only issue is the steady
    upcreep in alcohol. Tasted some Nota Bene a couple weeks back that was
    15%. Nice wine, but yikes, it's like the old days of Zins (which are
    now routinely pushing 16+%).
