($24) Bright medium ruby. Superripe, slightly high-toned aromas of blackberry, chocolate and licorice, plus a suggestion of molasses. Sweet, lush and easygoing, with a slightly roasted character. Has just enough shape but doesn't quite equal the other 2008 Owen Roe syrahs for floral lift or definition. Finishes with firm, dusty tannins.

About This Producer


Owen Roe, named after a 17th century Irish patriot who dedicated his life to political equality and freedom, is owned and run by Jerry Owen and David O'Reilly (winemaker). Their aim is to source only the very best fruit from top sites in Oregon and Washington, handle it gently in the winery, and produce wines of superior balance and quality. O'Reilly is meticulous in his attention to detail from the vineyard to the bottle, and his hard work and dedication show through in the final products.
