Not yet reviewed; 2010 vintage rated 90 points by Wine & Spirits.
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.
External Reviews for Owen Roe Sinister Hand Columbia Valley
Sinister Hand is a blend of dark, hearty red grapes traditionally used in wine from France's Rhone region. The Sinister Hand blend contains Washington State grown Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, and Counoise fruit.
(71% grenache, 24% syrah and 5% mourvedre): Bright ruby-red. Precise, inviting aromas of black cherry, licorice and herbs. Juicy and sharply delineated, with terrific intensity and lift to its pepper and cherry flavors. Lively acidity lends this wine a light touch, and firm tannins wont stand in the way of enjoying it soon. This spicy red displays a velvety feel to the dark berry, red plum and pepper flavors, finishing with a catch of tight tannins. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre.
