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.

    My husband and I very much enjoyed a Sharecroppers Cabernet last time we were in Seattle. Can you tell me who might carry the wine in the Colorado Springs, Colorado area?

      Greetings Alicia,
      Glad to learn that you also enjoyed this Cab. My suggestion would be to contact Owen Roe at 509-877-045 or send an email Kate at [email protected] to ask about their sales in Colorado.
      Best wishes.

    This is a really great Cab – my favorite when I lived in Yakima. O moved to Northampton Massachsetts about 5 years ago. Do you have any retailers that carry Sharecroppers in MA? Thanks
