Everybody Loves A Trolley, Especially If It’s Electric!

What is it about trolleys that are so appealing? The city of San Francisco loses millions of dollars a year keeping its iconic trolley car system running. Tennessee Williams wrote an entire play about a trolley named Desire.

Caprio Cellars 2016 Estate Sanitella Red Wine, Walla Walla Valley, $88

If there seems to be some stylistic inspiration provided by nearby Pepper Bridge Winery, that makes sense because Caprio Cellars owner/winemaker Dennis Murphy recently invested in the historic Walla Walla brand launched by Norm McKibben and Jean-François Pellet. However, Murphy owns both of the vineyards that factor into this Left Bank-Bordeaux blend from the fracture-basalt soils at Octave (55%) in the SeVein planting and the clay/loam of Eleanor (45%), the vines near his tasting room. While it’s 100% French oak, same as in his Eleanor programe, there’s a bit more new oak (55%) involved with this Sanitella, and Malbec (22%) comes in right alongside the Merlot (22%) and behind the Cabernet Sauvignon (50%). It’s a bright red featuring dusty blackberry and blueberry notes, a bit of savory akin to black olive, beveled tannins and richness of boysenberry acidity.

Officials say wild salmon runs on Snake River tributary are in dire straits

STARBUCK, Wash. — Picture a fading fluorescent light tube, sputtering off and on and humming a warning that it may soon blink out and go dark. Tucannon River spring salmon are displaying their own signs of impending darkness. For the past five years, fewer than 50 wild spring chinook have returned to spawn in the river that tumbles out of the Wenaha-Tucannon Wilderness area in Washington’s Blue Mountains and twists its way north through ponderosa pine and cottonwood trees to join the Snake River near Starbuck.
