David O’Reilly of Oregon’s Owen Roe grew up in war-torn Northern Ireland as part of a family of 14, so he understands the value of celebrating every day of life. His ever-growing Sharecropper’s Wine Co. brand produces a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington’s Yakima Valley that’s priced for everyday consumption. Aromas of Bing cherry, fresh strawberry and plum pick up hints of milk chocolate and earthiness. Inside is a friendly, entry-level Cab that’s rich, fresh and fruity with dark plum and boysenberry flavors backed by supple tannins. Notes of dark chocolate and cocoa create pleasing length.
