Owen Roe – Chapel Block Syrah – Vertical 2008-11
Owen Roe has specially packaged all four vintages of Washington’s iconic Chapel Block Syrah, made from the state’s oldest Syrah vines. As far as owner/winemaker David O’Reilly knows, this is the first retail vertical of this wine available. Every year this wine is lush, dense & has extraordinary intensity while maintaining balance. Savory bacon, pepper & dark fruit flavors highlight all of these wines. You won’t find this anywhere else.
