Snake River AVA is hot AF. The wines remind me of Paso. That said, as wth Paso, there are some good wines to be had, especially if you can put them down for a bit to soften. Koenig is the shining example of the AVA and when you want a burley tannic wine to pair with a fatty charred rib eye, this works. Better with age. — 6 months ago
Have a close look at the label. I guess that is how you bring your deer home after a hunting trip if you don’t have a pickup truck. This 17 year old Syrah from Idaho was getting over the top. Still very flavorful with dark spiced fruit but it was getting oxidized under notes. — 2 months ago
Snake River Farms steak night! — 2 months ago
Cain Five and Waygu strip steak(from Snake River Farms) zoom tasting with Chris Howell(owner of Cain) and Chef Hiro Sone (owner/chef of the former Terra in St. Helena). 2008 vintage and 2013 vintage.
Prior notes apply for the 2008 vintage.
2013 vintage: 1 hour decant (some cloudy sediment). A dark garnet color with a little bricking. On the nose: certain vintages of Cain embrace the Brett on the property, and this is one of em. Some funky barnyard (luv it), plum, pine, tobacco, smoked meat, forest floor, orange peel. Taste: smooth medium plus body wine with plum, pine, currant, coffee, and a bitter chocolate dry medium plus finish. Some tannins still kicking wanting a few more years in the bottle. — a month ago
