2012 Owen Roe "Abbot's Table" Columbia Valley Red Blend
Similar to previous releases, Owen Roe's 2012 "Abbot's Table" blend is made up of Sangiovese, Zinfandel, Malbec, Merlot and yes, Blaufränkisch from select Yakima Valley vineyards. Aged for in neutral French oak, it delivers, according to the winery's note, "mouthwatering aromas of plum, raspberry, white pepper and herbaceous undertones. The mouth-feel has lovely depth and richness with bright acidity, rounded out with hints of vanilla, dark cocoa nibs, robust violet and spice." There's something for everyone to love in this food-friendly, international kitchen sink blend. Serve it up with a hearty stew or mixed grill and you've got a happy table!
