Better than porn sites. And a lot less clicking.

As much as I'd like to believe that the Vine Print is your one-stop source for wine info, I have to be an adult and acknowledge that, appearances aside, I don't know everything. (I only convinced my editor I do in order to get this gig.) Fortunately, what little I can't provide you with, the Internet can. Want news and reviews of wine? Try WineSpectator.com. Got an itch to buy online? Nobody makes it easier than eVineyard.com. Need info on Northwest wineries and touring? WinesNW.com is where I go. Just don't tell my editor. Could this be the wine of the year? OK, I know it's only June. But I can't imagine finding a wine this year I'm going to like more than the 1998 Cayuse Syrah from Cobblestone Vineyard. This mind-blowingly complex wine has flavors of mocha, coffee, leather, cinnamon, and creamy milk chocolate. Only problem is, there's very little of this wine to be had. E-mail the winery (tell them I sent you) at info@CayuseVineyards.com to find out where it's sold or to order ($32) direct from the winery. Believe me, it's worth the price and the effort to find it. Hey, Wine Guy: I'm just getting interested in wine. Can you recommend a few wineries to go visit? STELLA, WINSLOW Hey, Stella: If you'd like to make a weekend of it, head south to Oregon's Willamette Valley. It's very picturesque and is home to Oregon's best wineries, such as Panther Creek, Ken Wright, Domaine Serene, and Archery Summit. Some other good spots to visit are Rex Hill, Erath, and Argyle. Send photos. DENNIS e-mail: wine@seattleweekly.com
