Owen Roe Ex Umbris Syrah 2019
|Region||United States, Washington, Yakima Valley|
Ex Umbris opens up on the nose with dried cranberries and a touch of stone and leather. The masculine aromas then give way to fresh cherry and blueberry on the palate. Subtle pepper and light smokiness follows the fruit to the mid-palate. The tannins are mellow already which makes this our everyday Syrah.
Cranberry, raspberry, orange peel, coffee and smoke aromas are followed by velvety soft, plump yet still limber plum flavors. Coffee notes linger on the finish.
Bright red-ruby. Black cherry, dark raspberry, blueberry, mocha, pepper and dark chocolate on the nose. Juicy, high-pitched and penetrating, with refreshing pepper and herbal lift to its fine-grained red and darker berry flavors. Savory as much as sweet, displaying lovely energy and juiciness. Finishes with dusty but even tannins and very good rising floral length. A seamless, lively, brisk wine with no rough edges. This perennial top value is delicious today.
