Review:

Owen Roe's Keeper is plush and velvety, full-bodied and easy drinking. The scent and flavors knock you out - spice joins black tea, fresh tobacco, thyme, sweet cedar chips, black berries and cassis. When Cabernet Franc is made from well ripened fruit, (as this wine is) it combines plush fruit and interesting accent notes with body that stands well with rich roasted and grilled meats. The name "Keeper" is inspired by the Song of Solomon. This is a great price for a rich and full-bodied Cabernet Franc - as is usual with Owen Roe.


Look not upon me, because I am dark, because the sun has darkened me: my mother's children were angry with me; they made me the keeper of the vineyards;
but my own vineyard have I not kept.

- Song of Solomon 1:6

Several distinctive vineyards from the Yakima Valley AVA were sourced to produce this exceptional and affordable Cabernet Franc. Owen Roe sourced perfectly ripened fruit for this wine, and the result is an exceptional and affordable example of this unique varietal. Lovely fresh tobacco and green olive fragrance provide a gracious backdrop for the exuberant berry fruit with just a hint of violets.

The Keeper "...is truly a "keeper". This deliciously large version of Cab Franc is smoother than Cabernet Sauvignon, less earthy than Merlot, approachable like Aussie Syrah and spicy like a smooth Zinfandel. There's few options to pair this wine incorrectly...you'll love it alone or with any meaty meal. There's not much of it out there, however..." - Seattle Examiner

This is a great price for a rich and full-bodied Cabernet Franc - as is usual with Owen Roe.
