Description

"Owen Roe is devoted to producing the most intense wines possible from great vineyards in the Pacific Northwest. It is a partnership between Jerry Owen, who closely monitors the vineyards and David O'Reilly who makes and sells the wine. Grapes are sourced from excellent vineyards in the Willamette, Mid-Columbia, Yakima Valley, and Walla Walla Valleys. Each vineyard is contracted by the acre with strict controls on yields and vine development. The protocol in winery follows similarly tight controls- minimal handling, racking by gravity, and excellent cooperage greeting the fruit. Owen Roe produces some 4,500 cases of single vineyard and blended wines. The popular Abbott's Blend includes Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah. The label also produces a lovely Zinfandel. In addition, Owen Roe, named after Irish patriot Owen Roe O'Neil, produces a Cabernet Franc, a Cabernet Sauvignon from Dubrul Vineyard that is extremely rare, a Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Merlot and a delightful ice wine." -Winery
