This signature Owen Roe red blend is comprised of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon. True to its name, this wine represents the best of these varietals from five Yakima Valley vineyards: DuBrul, Elerding, Outlook, Red Willow and Union Gap.
Aging: This wine matures for 23 months in 40% new French oak barrels.
Tasting Notes: This full-bodied Yakima Valley blend displays tremendous aromas of cedar, baking spice, and violets. A profile of blueberry, blackberry, and spice balances smoothly on the palate. Soft tannins linger with hints of pepper. Enjoy now or lay down for 12+ years. This wine will evolve and benefit from patience.
