OWEN ROE 2007, 2008 NEW RELEASES
Yakima Red 07, Kilmore Pinot noir 08
Lady Rosa Syrah 08, Sinister Hand 08
Four of Owen Roe's most popular wines
are about to be released.
Watch for Avalon's detailed tasting notes.
These wines will ship in mid-September.
Yakima Red 07
The Yakima Red is back after a long hiatus. It's THE go-to Bordeaux blend from Washington. Cab, Cab Franc and Merlot fuse to perfection. From Washington state's classic 2007 vintage.
Kilmore Pinot noir 08
Oregon 2008 Pinot noir
One of Avalon's most popular Pinots every vintage. The 2008 is dark and rich with excellent balance.
Named for the old abbey on the O'Reilly clan's land in Ireland, on Trinity Island. The label is a handpulled etching of a photo of one of the Romanesque arches in the ruins of the Abbey.
Sinister Hand 08
Owen Roe's Sinister Hand is an exhuberant, lush, lively, juicy blend of Rhone varietals. It is a blend of 62% Grenache, 35% Syrah, and 3% Mourvedre, primarily from the Horse Heaven Hills.
Lady Rosa Syrah 08
A brand new release that follows on the heels of its Wine Spectator 94-point, Highly Recommended 2007 predecessor. We love the purity and power of the Lady Rosa.
Chehalem Mountains Pinot noir 08
Owen Roe's biggest, burliest Pinot noir. Only 100 cases produced.
Solomon Hills Pinot noir 07
Owen Roe's California Pinot noir from the blockbuster 2007 California vintage.
There's an Unusually large number of
new Northwest wines for this time of year.
Check them out.
