Chateau de l’estang 2009 $12.95

Monday, August 11th, 2014

Owen Roe Rosa Mystica 2011 $26.95

Monday, August 11th, 2014

Rosa Mystica from Owen Roe is a case in point. Made from fruit grown at four Yakima Valley vineyards (Red Willow, Olsen, Union Gap and the Owen Roe Estate), fermented in small lots and aged for 14 months mostly used French oak barrels (the winery says the new barrels made up less than 10% of the mix) and racked only once, the wine is a delight. Its nose is full of red fruit and roasted red peppers, olive and licorice scents. On the palate, the flavors of rhubarb and blackberry dominate, but there’s an earthy undercurrent framed by soft tannins and vibrant acidity.

The American oak adds complexity and a robust kick. The palate follows the nose, with intense, persistent and elegant, mature tannins, through the long finish. You’ll score big points with this wine.

The Devil You Dont know 2012 $23.95
