Owen Roe Abbot's Table 2007

Wednesday, July 30, 2008

Owen Roe – located in Oregon – makes a number of exceptional wines from Washington fruit. Each year, the Abbot’s Table is something to look forward to. Always a fascinating blend of grapes, this year’s wine does not disappoint. The blend is as follows – 22% Sangiovese; 20% Zinfandel; 20% Merlot; 15% Cab Franc; 7% Grenache; 6% Syrah; 3% Cinsault; 3% Petit Syrah; 3% Malbec; 1% Pinot Noir. Wow! A 2007 – ridiculously young for a red wine – this wine still needs a bit of time to settle down.







Owen Roe Abbot’s Table Columbia Valley 2007

Somewhat light in color, the wine has a bold nose marked by milk chocolate, cinnamon, and spice. This is an almost syrupy wine with a lot of body to it. A bit astringent, perhaps due to its young age, the wine also has a bit too much alcohol on the nose. If these aspects settle down over time, this wine will be a whopper for the money. Recommended.
