Owen Roe Syrah Ex Umbris United States Washington 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep plum and dark cherry perfume precedes the velvety texture with bushels of blackberry, peppercorn and black licorice playing against plush tannins.

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.

This is dark, inky and brooding in the glass, giving only hints of charcoal, black fruit and earth aromas. With air, this gains a touch of hot iron and some candied blackberry tones. Very fresh in the mouth, with noticeable extract lending a tactile impression on the palate but not so extracted as to feel forced or weighty. This is round yet very well balanced with fresh tannins and that nice acid supporting deep, inky, gingerbread-crusted blackberry fruit. There’s a nice herbal top note and something almost floral as well, but this remains a bit tight in the mouth. The finish shows some sweet, toasty oak and a long layer of bittersweet chocolate and licorice before tapering off on some fleshy fruit tones. Quite a wine. 93pts
