Owen Roe Cabernet Sauvignon Yakima Valley Dubrul Vineyard 2009
The 2009 is powerful and masculine with flavors of rich black fruits, deftly interwoven with notes of wild violet and mocha. Luscious blackcurrant is mingled with flavors of purple sage and savory herbs, all of which come together on a beautifully structured, long finish. This wine will age beautifully. Barrel aged 16 months in 30% new French oak. 530 cases produced. Not yet reviewed; 2008 vintage rated 92 points by Wine Spectator.
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.
