Best Buy! Among the bright spots in our comparative tasting was this young second label for Owen Roe that has winemaker Jacki Evans’s fingerprints all over it. There’s a remarkable elegance to its profile of black cherry, black currant, violets and cocoa, framed by delicious acidity and silky tannins. Longtime fans of David O’Reilly’s Sharecropper Pinot Noir program know he routinely overdelivers with his second labels.

Rating: Gold medal – 95 points

Production: 1,000 cases

Alcohol: 14.1%
