Yakima Valley Red Blend 2013

Owen Roe

The initial aromatics show bright Cabernet Franc spice notes of cinnamon, anise and pink peppercorn. A blast of pretty plum fruit and firm tannins boasts a well-rounded mouthfeel with hints of subtle oak toast and dusty earth. Pair this bold red wine with smoked ribeye for the ultimate luxury as we wrap up the winter.

Reviews

  • "92 points. The 2013 'Yakima Valley' Red Wine by Owen Roe is a fantastic value new release from this estate. This great wine is a blend of 45% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Franc, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon that was aged 10 months in French oak. This red wine starts with bright aromas of red cherry, sage, red bell pepper and anise. This leads to smooth flavors of red bell pepper, anise, cassis and blackberry jam. I see some really nice cellaring potential here. (Best 2016-2026)." (International Wine Report)
  • "91 points. A blend of Merlot (45%), Cabernet Franc (33%) and Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine offers aromas of cocoa, spice, flowers, herb and red and black fruit. The flavors show concentration and depth, along with a lovely sense of texture that keeps the interest high. The tannins give a light squeeze." (Wine Enthusiast)
