Owen Roe Red Rhone Blend Columbia Valley Sinister Hand 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

This Gigondas (Cote du Rhone) style wine is bright and fruity with a burst of ripe plums, sweet herbs, & baking spices melowing out to a medium finish. This wine has it's own cultfollowing for both the excellent quality of the juice, but also because of thestory. As told by winemaker DavidO'Reilly, a famous Irishman was in a race to homestead some land. Many folkswere rowing towards land, and the first to arrive would gain title. TheIrishman in question knew he would not reach shore first, so he cut off hishand and threw it onto the beach, thus being first to touch the ground.Cheese Pairings: Soft cheeses, Saint Nectaire, Port SalutFood Pairings: Roasted Meats, Grilled Vegetables

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.

Berry aromas with a bit of floral and blueberry. Sophisticated womanly palate. Beautiful blueberry blackberry fruit with a tinge of cocoa. Lovely
