The Keeper Cabernet Franc Corvidae 2009
The Keeper is a Keeper. We know that sounds corny but give it a try and you'll know what we mean. Lovely fresh tobacco and green olive fragrance provide a graceful backdrop for the exuberant berry fruit with just a hint of violets. If you love deep rich wine with plenty of character you'll be keeping this one around, seriously. Pair this wine with green peppercorn roasted pork tenderloin, hearty lasagna, or braised chicken with wild mushroom ragout.
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.
An amazing cab franc at a great price! This is a deep, rich, wine with a fruity-leather nose and strong finish. The cab franc paired well with our Italian meal (spicy sausage ragout). Let it breath a bit, and you'll be very pleasantly surprised!
