A Lot of Excitement, A Little Egg: Yakima Red is Back!

Greetings Owen Roe fans,

It's with a lot of excitement and a little egg on our faces that we write this. We were told, with 100% certainty, that Yakima Red was gone forever. We even saw proposed new label designs and names. We advised you accordingly, hence the egg.

Now to the excitement: our most popular Washington red wine of the last decade is back, and it is spectacular! We like this wine so much we talked with Owen Roe about custom bottling a bunch just for us. 

Owen Roe Yakima Red 2013
$24.98 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($27.75 regular
This. Is. Fantastic. Billowing with black raspberry, black cherry, and a beautiful bottom note of sweet black currant, it sings through the finish with cedar, spice, and floral accents. Classic Yakima Red, easily one of the strongest vintages since its inception. - Marcus  
45% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Franc, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon.
When we learned about the return of Yakima Red, we had to sit down with winemaker David O'Reilly to learn more.
at right, Andy, Marcus, and David O'Reilly

"After my last bottling of the 2012 Yakima Valley Red Wine I decided to discontinue this popular wine. My idea was to consolidate the Yakima Red and Rosa Mystica Cabernet Franc to craft an uber Right Bank Bordeaux blend with a different name and label. 

This 2013 Yakima Valley Red Wine is that uber wine -- I'm ecstatic with both it's Bordeaux-esque qualities and new-world brightness. I hope that you enjoy the New/Old Yakima Red Wine -- it is precisely the look, flavor, and feel of Owen Roe in Yakima Valley."

The New/Old Name
"Its name couldn't be more basic -- it is the epitome of Yakima Valley Red Wine. This label was used by me since the first bottling in 2000, so I decided to use the same package. The image of Drumlane Abbey in County Cavan, Ireland has such resonance with me and my family history that I had to continue with the old label."

The second stand-alone Malbec from Owen Roe is a winner. Inky dark, sporting ripe blackberry with mint, vanilla, and pepper accents. Intense and also lively, this is an awesome addition to Owen Roe's line-up. From Union Gap Vineyard, Owen Roe's estate property in Yakima Valley. Tiny production, very limited.
