Sharecroppers Cabernet Sauvignon California Red S 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The fuit for the 2008 Sharecropper Cabernet Sauvignon is all Columbia Valley AVA. With a beautifully long Indian summer the ‘08 vintage yielded perfectly ripe fruit with lithe bright acidity. This wine has a beautiful nose ripe with blueberries, black currants, dark cherries and wild strawberries. A nice long finish lingers with flavors of licorice, olives and cedar. Muscular, but not a brute, firm tannins and elegant structure will let this wine age beautifully over 4-6 years.

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.
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

I've been delighted with this delightful cab which is rich and deep for a young wine. Mellow tannins, rich but not to pronounce fruit with a cherry/berry overtone and a very lovely finish.

Rich dark almost black purple, mellow beautiful ample tannins, taste of earth and strong berry with a finish that left me wanting more. It's simply for the price, a GREAT WINE

I wrote a review. It's not showing up. I am not going to rewrite it. Succinctly put: tastewise it compared favorably to a wine priced at $75. I'd rather have a half case of 08 Sharecroppers than 1 of the $75.
