Rombauer Cabernet Sauvignon 2019, Napa Valley
The color is intense and beautiful, almost black with purple, reddish hues. Aromas of black cherry, cassis, piecrust, spice, and mint mingle and leap from the glass. The palate is full and concentrated with similar aromas but also featuring black currant and sweet red cherry with the mild presence of oak, seamlessly integrated. Signature finely structured tannins and balanced acidity give way to a long finish which continues to build after that last sip.

2018 Growers Guild (Sharecropper’s) Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley$22.00
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 their farming friends and prevent missing out on such well-tended, beautiful fruit. They were presented with the difficult and costly purchasing of grapes to process, cellar and bottle, waiting several months to recover the costs on the finished wine. To overcome this obstacle, they decided to bring back the historical business practice of sharecropping, resulting in the aptly named wine, “Sharecropper’s.” Now called Growers Guild, this partnership meant that Owen Roe would take the fruit, make the wine and once it was sold, share the profits with the growers. This remains an important part of their history and due to the success of this wine; they are now able to pay the growers upfront. Everyone’s favorite go-to weeknight Cab does not disappoint in the Growers Guild Cabernet Sauvignon 2018. 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.
