Koenig Distillery and Winery Cuvee Alden Private Reserve 2004
Some of the very first grapes planted in the Pacific Northwest were planted in Idaho in the 1860s. Today the state is home to over 50 wineries making wines of all styles.
One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
