We thank you very much for this nice review. Warm regards the Bousquet team
Thanks for this great review, and for including two Idaho wines! I'm looking forward to trying the Donkey and Goat. We would love to hear what you think about our wines at Telaya too, right now in the same building as Cinder!
Might I suggest a nice Rose,as it is pretty heat friendly,you will see in the south of France its on every table,or a nice Gruner veltliner......mmmmmmmmmmmm
Technically, Garden City everyone!
Fantastic! Sounds like a great place to meet up with friends and great for Boise.
Very cool! This is a very positive and great thing for the city of Boise.
There is no justification in the text to support the title of this piece.
how could you forget Cinder's award winning Viognier from right here in the Treasure Valley. It is an awesome wine! http://www.northwestwinesummit.com/2010bes…
David, thanks for your reply and yes I live in Dallas Texas, wonder if the places you mention would happen to have a website I could order from? I have yet to find anything that comes close to this wonderful wine, I'm sad!
I know you can get them at the Boise Co-op Wine Shop (since I work there), but you might also want to check in with A New Vintage Wine Shop, Porterhouse Meats or Erickson's Fine Wine, especially if you live closer to Eagle or the North End. I'm assuming you live in the Valley, but with the comment from Dallas, I may be wrong. Hope that helps.
David (or anyone else reading this for that matter) - you mention these wonderful wines but how does someone go about ordering or finding these wines? I'd appreciate the direction or guidance!
I was able to experience the '09 Domaine de Couron this past weekend at a wonderful French resturant here in Dallas. That wine is AMAZING! Everything about it, the color, the taste, it was perfect with our meal along with it's a GREAT wine on a HOT summer day! Excellant :-)
No question that the 22oz and 750 ml bottles have become very popular with brewers and beer lovers alike. We have seen more and more of our 500+ beers go from 12 oz bottles to 22 oz bottles in the last 6 months and it looks like that trend is only going to pick up steam.
"this one will grow on you in an insidiously lovely way"
you could not have said it any better. i used to frequent monks regularly when i lived in philadelphia. even with thousands of choices, i often couldn/t leave without a taste of the flemish sour.
i/ll be picking up a couple of bottles this evening.
Did we at Parma Ridge do something to offend you?? In the recent Treasure Valley Wine Competition, we won one gold and two bronze medals and you didn't even bother to mention us in the article.
Great to see some coverage on Idaho Wines in the Wine Sipper, Thanks!
The Snake River Valley is also a great area to grow and produce Rhone style reds. While 100% Syrah is the most popular, and probably the most suited to the regions climate, many winemakers are blending small amounts of the other Rhone grapes. Sawtooth's Syrah is an excellent example which is a blend of 86% Syrah, 7% Cinsault, 7% Mourvedre and 1% Grenache. Cheers!
I recently moved back to Boise from the UK and I'm having major Strongbow withdrawls...where can I find it around here?
The two best value reds currently in Australia would have to be:
Seppelt 2003 Victorian Shiraz $12.99AUS
Seppelt 2003 Chalambar Shiraz $16.00AUS
Both wines have generous fruit picked at optimum ripening levels with fine-grained tannins and sustained length. Great structured and 'serious' wines and both incredible bargains. If you can access them don't hesitate to buy. These are also genuine cellaring candidates. ENJOY !! Let me know what you think.
