Join us as we sample an awesome value line from Washington state’s Owen Roe Winery! Washington’s incredibly varied geography gives winemakers the opportunity to find perfect growing conditions for a wide variety of grapes. Owen Roe takes advantage of this fact and does a great job everything from steel-fermented Chardonnay to an oak-aged Bordeaux blend. Sample this whole lineup this weekend!
2015 Corvidae “Wiseguy” Sauvignon Blanc, Washington
On Sale $12.99
Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most dynamic grapes grown in Yakima Valley. When fully ripe it still has the hallmark acidity and fragrance of world class versions. The Outlook Vineyard is the source of this fruit. Planted in 1982, the vines yield perfectly ripe fruit that has fully ripe flavors, plenty of minerality, with tremendous natural acidity.
2014 Corvidae “Mirth” Chardonnay, Washington
On Sale $10.99
The Mirth is quintessential Chardonnay exhibiting bright tropical notes and excellent purity of flavor and balance unencumbered by oak flavor. The wine is fermented and cellared in stainless steel to preserve its freshness and varietal character.
2014 Owen Roe “Ex Umbris” Syrah, Yakima Valley, Washington
On Sale $21.99
This bold Ex Umbris is reminiscent to the stylings of past vintages, with dark fruit
notes of plum, fig and black cherry aromas. A sense of dusty earth hits the palate
with compliments of cedar, leather and a firm tannin structure; finishing with fine
acidity and lasting notes of dried fig and cherry compote.
2014 Owen Roe Sharecropper’s Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, Oregon
On Sale $22.99
This deservedly popular value bottle gets the star Pinot treatment—nine months in French oak, 27% new. It’s spicy and full-flavored, with resonant blue plum fruit, buttery toast and a tannic frame.
91 Points, The Wine Enthusiast
2014 Owen Roe Sharecropper’s Yakima Valley Red Wine (Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon)
On Sale $28.99
The initial aromatics show bright Cabernet Franc spice notes of cinnamon, anise and pink peppercorn. A blast of pretty plum fruit and firm tannins boasts a well-rounded mouthfeel with hints of subtle oak toast and dusty earth. Pair this bold red wine with smoked ribeye for the ultimate luxury as we wrap up the winter.
2014 Owen Roe Sharecropper’s Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley
On Sale $15.99
Everyone’s favorite go-to weeknight Cab does not disappoint in 2014. Sweet aromas of blackberry, candied fruit, vanilla and brown sugar leads to a more savory palate of pomegranate, green pepper and oil cured olives. This Cabernet finishes with bright acidity and lingering tannins. We recommend opening this wine now and enjoying it at a young age, however, this will age well for 4-6 years when properly cellared.
