Owen Roe is committed to practicing the highest standards of winemaking. Taking its name from the Irish patriot and commander during the Irish Rebellion of 1641, they try to emulate their namesake's commitment to exceptionalism through winemaking. The historical Owen Roe's personality and the mysterious circumstances of his death at Cloughoughter Castle (shown below) inspire the labels on Abbot's Table and Sinister Hand as well as their other less-haunting labels that you will recognize like the Sharecropper's Pinot Noir.
All fruit is hand harvested from the Owen Roe vineyards in the Columbia Valley, Washington. The Sinister Hand is a blend of Rhone varietals, Grenache, Syrah, Mouvedre and Cinsault. It offers inviting aromas of black cherry and licorice. On the palate, juicy black fruit, savory herbs with nice structure and intensity. A wine from the Pacific Northwest, Washington State drinking like a baby Chateauneuf Du Pape. Drink now.
