Owen Roe Favorites are Back!

We're particularly excited about the new releases from Owen Roe, including our most popular Washington red wine of the last decade, Yakima Red, and a standout vintage for the southern Rhone-style blend, Sinister Hand. We're big fans of both and think you will be, too!

Owen Roe Yakima Red 2014

$24.98 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($27.75 regular

Billowing with dark red berries, black cherries, and a beautiful bottom note of sweet black plum, it sings through the finish with cedar, spice, and caramel. Classic Yakima Red, this velvety smooth number is good to go at release and will age gracefully for 6 to 10 years. 51% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Franc, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon.

For David O'Reilly, this is the look, flavor, and feel of Owen Roe in Yakima Valley. The label image is of Drumlane Abbey in County Cavan, Ireland, which has immense resonance with David and his family history.

Owen Roe Sinister Hand 2016

$24.98 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($27.75 regular) 

An especially delicious Sinister Hand, and surprisingly yummy for such a young wine, the '16 delivers juicy-spicy strawberry and fig with accents of clove and peppercorns. Equally at home as a sipper or a versatile food wine -- seriously, you could pour this with just about anything. 63% Grenache, 16% Syrah, 16% Mourvedre, 5% Cinsault.  

The label: Long ago, during the 17th century, the O'Neills and O'Reillys were two revolutionary Irish families. They formed a rowing competition to reserve rights to some highly regarded land.  The two rowing teams agreed that the first to touch the land, after rowing across the lake, would become ruler of the land. O'Neill's boat was falling behind so a member of the crew grabbed his own sword, cut off his hand and threw it ashore, winning the title to rule the land. This land still remains in the family.
