5/19/2015 - Sijan Likes this wine: NR

A bit past its prime, but still good - lots of tertiary notes. Mild & subtle, very old world. Would be good w/ fall food.

Perhaps the best gruner I've ever had - this had good fruit, lots of flavor (white pepper, herbal & mineral notes) & bracing acidity

2011 Koenig Vineyards Pinot Noir Stowe Vineyards

Snake River Valley more

3/5/2015 - Sijan Likes this wine: 85 points

Unusual Pinot, but not bad for a Pinot from SW Idaho, which is not an ideal climate for that grape. Primary fruit flavors, not a lot of complexity. A bit thin & astringent. Perfectly drinkable but not a good value at an over $20 price point.

Great fruit, really drinking well. Surprisingly elegant for a zin. Unusually silky tannins & a fair amount of sediment in this bottle.

Very funky, somewhat unpleasant sulphuric/reductive nose that did not blow off while we were drinking it. Wine itself is perfectly drinkable but not anything impressive

2009 Domaine Jean Royer Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Tradition

Red Rhone Blend more

2/18/2015 - Sijan wrote: NR

Popped & poured. Seemed a bit closed. Not terribly impressive for a CdP with little power or complexity. More earthy than fruity. Surprisingly light bodied. Perfectly drinkable, but rather unremarkable. Possible it could benefit from some aeration, but I wouldn't bet on it.
