2008 Owen Roe Sharecropper's Cabernet Sauvignon Redux

Got some Tri-Tip on the grill, Football on the Tele and a bottle of Owen Rose 2008 Sharecropper's Cabernet Sauvignon open this afternoon. Yes, I've posted about this one before, back in June, but if you are having beef, nothing is better that a good Cab. Here's some propoganda from the Website:

"The fuit for the 2008 Sharecropper Cabernet Sauvignon is all Columbia Valley AVA. With a beautifully long Indian summer the 2008 vintage yielded perfectly ripe fruit with lithe bright acidity. This wine has a beautiful nose ripe with blueberries, black currants, dark cherries and wild strawberries. A nice long finish lingers with flavors of licorice, olives and cedar. Muscular, but not a brute, firm tannins and elegant structure will let this wine age beautifully over 4-6 years."

OK - I'll overlook the fact that they mispelled Fruit, because the author of this hits the mark perfectly - a truly great Washington Cabernet.
