Review:

The 2012 is the best Sharecropper's Cab in several vintages opens with spicy, buttery aromas. Cassis and cracked pepper give way to plum and red berry, with lively tannins adding interest. A solid bottle of Cab for under $15. - Marcus

Spicy aromas of jalapeno and cassis lead to flavors of plum, blackberry, olive and brioche. The mouth-feel is balanced with bright acidity, tart berry fruit notes and firm tannins. We recommend opening this wine now and enjoying it at a young age, however, this will age well for 4-6 years when properly cellared. - the winery

2011 Vintage

The first thing I wrote was "better and cheaper?" and I ought to stick with it. That's right - Washington's best value Cab just got...better. The Sharecropper's Cab is full of purple fruit goodness complemented by the exuberant tannins. And the price? Under $15. - Marcus

Sharecropper's is the label for wines produced in close collaboration with specific vineyards. David O'Reilly had a brilliant idea, to join with his favorite vineyards in making reasonably priced Northwest wines.

2007 Vintage

Owen Roe Sharecroppers Cabernet 07 has smoky blackberry and dark cherry aromas that leap out, signaling the showiness of this young Cabernet. Packed with juicy black fruit flavors--especially cassis--this is a big mouthful of Cab, with dried herbs and earth on the slightly chewy finish. David O'Reilly strikes again: great value, great wine.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon, David O'Reilly describes this as a very concentrated wine with flavors of cassis, blackberry, and a hint of juniper. The yield was down for the 2006 vintage, meaning less wine, but a more concentrated wine. Made from Elerding and Alderdale Vineyards in the Yakima Valley, there's also a bit of Red Willow Vineyard fruit in the wine. The wine is ready to drink, and David says: "It will blow you away".

2005 Vintage Tasting Notes

Richer and a bit more complex than last year's Sharecroppers Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine contains a bit of Merlot and Petit Verdot. It's lush and easy drinking, with smooth tannins and enough body to balance lots of foods, hearty cheeses, and to enjoy as a sipper while watching the game.

This is a rich, full bodied, ready to drink wine, filled with fresh fruit flavors, a great value and excellent followup to the wildly popular Sharecropper's Pinot noir.
