Named in honor of our esteemed Assistant Winemaker, Raul, the 2008 Mr. Owl’s Red is a delicious and lovingly crafted blend of our best fruit. Lighthearted in spirit but seriously manly, just like Raul.
Aromas: Oak spice, red berries, red licorice, smoke, soy sauce and cinnamon baked red apples.
On the palate: Medium bodied with flavors of red berries, grilled steak and toast with chalky tannins.
When our children were very young they had difficulty pronouncing a nice young man’s name, WHOOO had just began working with us. Tessa Rose and Reid would walk inside our old tin shackteau at the Walla Walla Airport and greet him with, “Hello Mr. Owl!” Raul has since become our Assistant Winemaker and is very special to us and our winery.
