Owen Roe Cabernet Franc Yakima Valley Rosa Mystica 2007
The cooler fall of 2007 was perfect for producing a quintessential vintage of our Rosa Mystica Cabernet Franc. The fruit was sourced entirely from Red Willow Vineyard, located in the far reaches of western Yakima Valley where moderate tempertures preserved beautiful aromatics as the fruit ripened. This Rosa Mystica has elements of Old World charm and fragrance, yet its bright berry and plush richness is all New World. With all the hallmarks of a world class Cabernet Franc, its ripeness and power do not overshadow the delicacy of its cedar fragrance, olive and beautiful berry fruit.
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.
How can I not like this wine with a name like that. I have been a fan of Owen Roe's Cabernet Franc and others for some time when I accidently found their ecletic barn, tasting room. I have to totally agree with the ease of drinking and the price makes it easier to consume regulariy.
