Owen Roe Red Blend Yakima Valley 2009
Scents of red and pink flowers, red and black plums, cranberry sauce and blackberry currant chutney. Flavors of tart red pie cherries, blueberry cobbler, sweet summer barbecue and raspberry turnovers give way to a balanced framework of tannins and finish with warm, lingering Madagascar vanilla and black lico- rice. 59% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon.
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.
