Cabernet 2012, Frediani Vineyards
The 2012 Cabernet, Frediani Vineyards is full of toasted spices, sun-warmed earth and wild dark fruits. A wonderful expression of black currants in a lush package of balanced acidity and fine textured tannins. There is definitely that touch of oak with little licorice and a bit of bittersweet chocolate.

MC4 Cabernet Sauvignon 2015$75.00Add to cart
The Martin & Croshaw vineyard is located in the St. Helena appellation of Napa Valley. The vines grow in an ideal location on a gently sloping hillside on the west side of the valley with excellent soil (Boomer gravelly loam) for the cultivation of Cabernet Sauvignon. Cabernet Sauvignon clones 337 and 6 were selected for the 2000 vines which are carefully oriented to fully capture the unique terroir of the site. They farm organically, and work is done by shovel and sweat. Irrigation is limited and they selectively thin the grapes to produce a concentrated, full bodied wine. It is a labor of love and of friendship.
The MC4 Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 is a gorgeous wine, ready to drink now with red cherry, black cassis and blackberry aromatics, a sumptuous body, silky tannins and a lengthy, elegant finish of red and dark fruit, all beautifully integrated and softened with French oak. Only 88 casese produced.
2016 Sharecropper’s Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley$20.00Add to cart
During the economic recession of 2001, and Owen Roe’s first couple vintages as a winery, Washington growers were facing hardship in selling their fruit, come harvest time. At Owen Roe, they wanted to help our farming friends and prevent missing out on such well-tended, beautiful fruit. We were presented with the difficult and costly purchasing of grapes to process, cellar and bottle, waiting several months to recover our costs on the finished wine. To overcome this obstacle, we decided to bring back the historical business practice of sharecropping, resulting in the aptly named wine, “Sharecropper’s.” This partnership meant that Owen Roe would take the fruit, make the wine and once it was sold, share the profits with our growers. This remains an important part of our history and due to the success of this wine; we are now able to pay our growers upfront. Everyone’s favorite go-to weeknight Cab does not disappoint in 2016. Sweet aromas of blackberry, candied fruit, vanilla and brown sugar leads to a more savory palate of pomegranate, green pepper and oil cured olives. This Cabernet finishes with bright acidity and lingering 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.
