Table 2006 from Owen Roe
for all People"
Some things just hit the
sweet spot ---
to like them.
is the character of
Roe Winery's Abbot's
for all People".
"The 2006 Abbot's
Table is a stunner, says winemaker David
a wine for all occasions and all people".
David continues: "This year
has more rich Zin and is juicy with tremendous
fruit and loads of character. I did not make
an Owen Roe Zinfandel for the 2006 vintage.
All the Zinfandel grapes went into the Abbot's
Table, to make it the wine I want it to be".
Abbot's Table has something
for everybody. A blend of nine different red
wines grapes, Zinfandel dominates, followed
by the traditional Bordeaux grapes Cabernet
Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot, joined
by Syrah. The extra zest, the secret
ingredient, is the addition
of Blaufrankish, Sangiovese, Petite Sirah,
and Malbec, from some of the best Washington
and Oregon vineyards.
Tasting the 2006 Abbot's
Table at Avalon yesterday, we found flavors of sweet
red fruit with hints of red cherry, black plum,
black cherry, cranberry jam, and cinnamon. There's
a lush, rich black fruit quality to the wine,
tempered by a refreshing hint of zesty red
cherry and spice. Tasting the Abbot's just
after a number of $45 reds, the Abbot's fit
right in! It's an incredible value once again,
and even with rising grape prices, David kept
the price the same as last year.
There's really nothing
else on the market quite like "the Abbot's".
It's a conversation starter, with rich, easy
drinking flavors, a super-appealing scent of
raspberries in the nose, hints of smoke and
spice, and that over-the-top lushness that
comes from the Zinfandel in the wine. The range
of grape types keeps the scent and flavors
changing constantly, and it just wins people
Zinfandel - 23%
Cabernet Sauvignon - 16.5%
Cabernet Franc - 14%
Syrah - 13%
Merlot - 11%
Blaufrankish - 8%
Sangiovese - 8%
Petite Sirah - 4.5%
Malbec - 2%
This is such a rich, yet easy
drinking red wine that can be paired with the
broadest range of foods. The Zinfandel component
pairs beautifully with zesty Italian fare.
The Bordeaux varieties scream for hearty beef
dishes, while thePetit Sirah makes the Abbot’s
Table perfect with lamb and game. Of course,
the Syrah works masterfully with
spicy cuisine. Then again, the Abbot’s
Table just tastes great by itself.
Winemaker David O’Reilly
was looking to create a wine from his childhood.
Born and raised in Ireland, O’Reilly’s
family often served wine at the dinner table,
and he has fond memories of a Claret, a Bordeaux
blend, that was rich, warm, silky, smooth and
Abbot’s Table is
tribute to his memories of Ireland. Of all
the high-end, premium wines he produces, O’Reilly
said Abbot’s Table is one of the most
fun to produce, and the wine that pays the
bills. David really goes all out with this
wine, and some of Owen Roe’s
best, single vineyard fruit ends up in the
says that Abbot’s Table is made before
the high-end Owen Roe wines, and the fruit
is selected from the same sources.
Abbot's Table will ship to
you in Mid-August. Order now to
assure you get some of this fast selling hit.
from Owen Roe
Walla Walla Cabernet Sauvignon 05 $42/$37.80
Deep aromas of black fruit, caramel, cinnamon, graphite, and barrel
spice. The flavors start to unfold--roasted black plums, black cherry
cassis, and coffee. An intense wave flashes on your palate,
suggesting the wine will continue to develop and evolve for years.
Fine grained tannins and balancing acidity provide a frame for the
massive fruit. The Walla Walla Cab is still young, but will continue
to develop beautifully and is lovely with decanting.
