Staff Pick Notes

Owen Roe O'Neill was a 17th century Irish Patriot, who dedicated his life to upholding the highest principles of political equality and freedom. His commitment to great things makes him an ideal role-model for the team at Owen Roe, who share his dedication to principle in producing their wines. Jerry Owen, on the vineyard side, and winemaker David O'Reilly formed Owen Roe with a simple purpose: to produce excellent wines from grapes grown and cultivated in the best vineyards in the Pacific Northwest. With an intriguing blend of 37% Sangiovese, 35% Zinfandel, 19% Blaufrankisch, and 9% Malbec, the Abbots Table honors the most fundamental form of hospitality throughout the ages; fellowship with guests over food and wine. Bursting with notes of dark red fruit and baking spices, this wine is well balanced with a long lingering finish.

In fact,...

Cabernet Sauvignon

The result of an illicit affair a hundred-odd years ago between Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon today enjoys more worldwide popularity than both of its parents combined. It is the principal grape of Bordeaux, and as such has rightly earned its place among the greatest and most long-lived wines of the Old World; of course, it is also the most heralded grape of California, positioning it at the forefront of the New World wine scene as well. Today, Cabernet Sauvignon has a...
