Bordeaux Blend, Owen Roe 'Yakima Red Blend'
49% Merlot/38% Cabernet Sauvignon/11% Cabernet Franc/2% Malbec
The Yakima Valley Red Wine is really a special wine to Owen Roe, as it is the wine that brought them to the Yakima Valley and continues to be a staple in their lineup. True to its name, this wine represents the best of these varietals from three Yakima Valley vineyards: Red Willow Vineyard, Union Gap Vineyard and DuBrul Vineyard.
The nose on the 2018 Yakima Valley Red Wine shows notes of red cherry and raspberry, followed by dried herbs, sweet spices and fresh leather. On the palate, similar tart red fruits lead to a nice mouth feel and acidity with medium-plus tannins, with a savory and subtly herbal finish. Aged 18 months, 2% New French Oak.
