VERY young, with heavy tannins and oakiness. GV would say "oak monster!" I liked the fruit under the tannic crush & oak, but it took some time swirling in the glass to bring it out. Excellent - 89 points.

From Walla Walla, this 530 square mile appellation is setting the standard for Northeast wine making. This fruit driven Cab blend is no exception with rich berries, mocha, and barrel spice and enough structure to go for several more years.


Winemaker's Notes:

80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc"Most of the grapes come from a mature block of the acclaimed Seven Hills Vineyard in Walla Walla. The fruit is farmed sustainably and the natural approach yields excellent results. We find that the flavors are superb very bright berry, cassis, and distinct cedary notes. The Merlot and Cabernet Franc are farmed by Adolf Klein at his Saint Isidore Vineyard, located about 6 miles west of Seven Hills. This gorgeous site is bordered to the south by the foothills of the Blue Mountains which serve to channel ferocious wind gusts through the vineyard. The buffeted vines struggle in the hill-top and produce smaller berries with intense flavors.The yields were low in 2006 and we made less than half of normal quantities. The 2006 is a beautiful wine with characteristic fragrance, cassis, and cedar notes that we like to see in this great growing area.The vineyard ripens its fruit with high sugars and flavors, however, unlike warmer areas it also retains marvelous acidity, a harbinger of age worthiness. These wines are Owen Roe's most precious and are powerful, super-intense, and should age well into the next decade."Winery Notes
