Owen Roe Red Rhone Blend Columbia Valley Sinister Hand 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes This Rhone-styled wine has very dark fruit flavors and pepper, with an excellent texture - it will work well with a variety of foods especially spicy fare and dark meats. The Sinister Hand label is a family crest - a depiction of a severed left hand that tells the story of a rowing competition among O'Neills and O'Reillys (Owen Roe was an O'Neill). Whoever touched land first after rowing across the lake was rewarded with the land he touched. Lagging behind, one of the kinsfolk grabs his sword and cleaves his hand and pitches it ashore to touch land first. He won the land and eventually ruled over it as king.

Owen Roe:
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.

Aroma of cinnamon, blueberries, roasted tobacco, paprika, strawberries. The mouth is rough in the beginning, smooths out a bit, and has a nice oak/vanilla touch in the middle.

Cherry, blackcurrant and cassis on the nose. Chocolate notes compliment a round and meaty mouthfeel with rich fruitcake flavors. Sweet finish on cocoa and almonds.

Dark fruit and hints of tobacco, overall a nice wine.

A bit on the thin side for a Syrah/Grenache/Mourvedre blend. Nice fruit, some pepper and earthiness in there as well. Again, in 6-18 months, this will be drinking fine!

Just released, and extremely young...score based on drinkability now, with some future potential added in. Nose is closed down. Even with air its not giving anything up. On the palate, there is bright, sweet raspberry fruit with a touch of pepper and a bit of alcohol heat. It is a bit thin also, which, after just drinking a bottle of the 2003 Sinister Hand tonight, is a disappointment. I would definitely wait a year or so to drink this wine.

Butter, bread, blueberries with a slight touch of tropical fruits. Incredibly smooth with great flavors. Touch of smokiness to remind you it's a good red.

This wine has subtle earthy notes with mouthfuls of fruit and a dry finish. It went great with Persian food we ate, kebobs, babaganoush, pickled vegetables, pita, rice, enhancing the flavor but not overpowering it. I would recommend it to complement a meal or to just enjoy!
