Owen Roe's New Label, Murphy's Law
STOMP! for Walla Walla Cab Under $20----Last Call for Mark Ryan's "Dissident" Red


Owen Roe's Murphy's Law Red

Dusted Valley's STOMP Red Wine

Owen Roe's Murphy's Law Red Wine $11.65/$12.95

"Murphy's Law"
is David O'Reilly's newest "value" wine label.
Murphy's Law is a well priced, quaffable red blend!

The back of the bottle says: "Here's to making a disaster of a wine. A gorgeous red blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Blaufrankish from the Columbia River Valley -- are you kidding? Balanced and delicious on its own, it harmonizes perfectly with food. But of course, this wine has no chance of success. If any wine was destined for failure, you surely hold it in your hands now."

Blaufrankish? Otherwise known as Lemberger. David always adds an original twist to his wines, and this one is no exception. It's a big bold everyday red that friends and family will grab and greatly enjoy.

Dusted Valley "Stomp" Walla Walla Cabernet Sauvignon 03
YUMMY! Stomp is a no-nonsense wine--just juicy dark fruit, deliciously toasty oak, and a remarkably long finish for a bargain wine. This one will keep your friends, and pocketbook, happy. Robust, rolicking, fun big red to drink now, quite the value for a Walla Walla Cabernet Sauvignon. Also contains Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and "something else", according to the winemaker.

Mark Ryan "Dissident" Red 04 $22.45/$24.95

Last call, we found a few more cases. It's sold out at the winery.
Made from all the "dissident" fruit that wouldn't "conform" to Mark's premium red blends. This is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah, some from barrels that didn't fit into his premium wine blends, and some from experimental vineyards he was testing for future release. Mark says it's approachable and ready to drink now.

Marcus says: "If juice like this didn't fit into Mark's premium red blends, you've got to be excited about the 2004 Long Haul, Dead Horse, and Gun Metal. The Cabernet/Merlot/Syrah blend is as delicious as any good value I've tasted from Washington in months. Big and rich, yet easy to get into right away, the Dissident is a perfect bridge between the sold-out 2003 big reds and the upcoming 2004s. Don't be shy...get a case."
