Wine Review: This opaque and dark ruby colored everyday Cabernet from Washington State is a good value option. It opens with black cherry and pipe tobacco bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a mild black plum with notes of old oak and a hint of black currant. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are rather sticky. This Cab is a very nice weekday option to enjoy with a juicy Angus burger. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Spicy aromas of jalapeno and cassis lead to flavors of plum, blackberry, olive and brioche. The mouth-feel is balanced with bright acidity, tart berry fruit notes and firm tannins. We recommend opening this wine now and enjoying it at a young age, however, this will age well for 4-6 years when properly cellared.

Buy it: Use 1000 Corks to find stores that sell Owen Roe 2012 Sharecropper's Cabernet.
