Owen Roe Abbot's Table Columbia Valley 2007
Since our first vintage in 1999, Owen Roe winery has been working to produce exceptional, hand crafted wines. We are especially committed to the low vigor hillside vineyards of Yakima Valley Washington. These vineyards yield fruit with low pH and high acidity, both harbingers of age-able wines.

Abbot's Table marks the first of many great red wine releases for the vintage. Their 2007 is no exception. With Franc, Grenache and Sangio in the Merlot-based mix, it is luscious, rich and juicy with layers and texture that are signature David
Owen Roe 2007 Abbots Table A terrific blend of, believe it or not, 10 different varietals. Young, yet extremely approachable now, and can be drunk alone or with friends, just kidding, can be drunk by itself or paired along with full-bodied fare, such as grilled meats, spicy sausage pizza and stews. Here's the makeup: 22% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot, 20% Zinfandel, 15% Cabernet Franc, 7% Grenache, 6% Syrah, 3% Petite Sirah, 3% Cinsault, 3% Malbec, 1% Pinot Noir Some assume that this, our most popular wine, is a "kitchen sink blend." On the contrary, it is the first red wine that we make each year, carefully blending small amounts from some of our finest lots to craft the Abbot's Table. The attempt each year is to make a ready to drink red that also is reflective of the vintage and the 2007 Abbot's Table does just that - the vintage yielded some lovely acids and the lowest pH's since 1999. The year was marked with great heat during the summer that was abruptly ended by an unseasonably long and cool fall, leaving us with ripe wines with great acidity. The 2007 Yakima Valley wines have big flavors that will cellar well. It has vibrant fruit aromas and delicious flavors, expressing the fruitiness and weight of Sangiovese and Zinfandel- it is such a rich, yet easy drinking wine that it can be paired with the broadest range of foods and also tastes great by itself.
