Food Pairings for Owen Roe Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley Sharecropper's
We were served this wine at a local spa & inn after telling the bartender what we liked. We were pleasantly surprised! Enough to prompt us to seek this wine out. This is good now & I have bought a few bottles to put away because you can taste the potential!!
I've been delighted with this delightful cab which is rich and deep for a young wine. Mellow tannins, rich but not to pronounce fruit with a cherry/berry overtone and a very lovely finish.
Rich dark almost black purple, mellow beautiful ample tannins, taste of earth and strong berry with a finish that left me wanting more. It's simply for the price, a GREAT WINE
I wrote a review. It's not showing up. I am not going to rewrite it. Succinctly put: tastewise it compared favorably to a wine priced at $75. I'd rather have a half case of 08 Sharecroppers than 1 of the $75.
good baland - nice finish -
External Reviews for Owen Roe Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley Sharecropper's
Sharecropper's Cabernet represents the historical practice of shared responsibility, from growing grapes, making and then selling the wine. Sharecropper's is value priced wine for everyday enjoyment.
Smoky blackberry and dark cherry aromas that leap out, signaling the showiness of this young Cabernet. Packed with juicy black fruit flavors--especially cassis--this is a big mouthful of Cab, with dried herbs and earth on the slightly chewy finish.
The fruit for this Pinot Noir was sourced from several sites in the Northern Willamette Valley, predominately the Eola-Amity Hills and the Yamhill-Carlton District. The warm summer of 2009 yielded fruit ripe with dark cherry cola flavors and an undercurrent of earth and coffee bean. This very balanced Pinot Noir is an excellent value.
Ripe notes of black plum and pure cacao flavors abound and are bolstered by elegant scents of anise, tobacco and cranberry. The finish is lengthy and provides a precise acid structure. Drink now through 2015.
Winemakers Notes - The fruit for the 2008 Sharecropper Cabernet Sauvignon is all Columbia Valley AVA. With a beautifully long Indian summer the 2008 vintage yielded perfectly ripe fruit with lithe bright acidity. This wine has a beautiful nose ripe with blueberries, black currants, dark cherries and wild strawberries. A nice long finish lingers with flavors of licorice, olives and cedar. Muscular, but not a brute, firm tannins and elegant structure will let this wine age beautifully over 4-6 years.
Bright red fruit such as plum and raspberry are the first aromas to shine through. After just a few minutes in the glass, aromas become more complex with hints of white pepper, earth and green olive. The flavors of this Cabernet Sauvignon capture many of the aromatics and pick up additional dried cranberry and coffee nuances. We recommend opening this wine now and enjoying it at a young age, however, this will age well for 4-6 years when properly cellared.
