Koenig Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

2009 Snake River Valley
100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Dark opaque red color. Rich and jammy with lots of dark fruit and pronounced earthiness. Powerful yet well balanced with moderate tannins. An excellent representative of the Snake River Valley AVA.

Sawtooth Chardonnay

2009 Snake River Valley

Peaches, cream, straw, and melon, but with a tinny/metallic finish. Medium body with moderate acid. Overall just fair.  This could have been a nice wine for the price, but the metallic tang brings it down.
