The 2015 'Sinister Hand' red blend is a generous fusion of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, and Cinsaut. It is easily approachable while displaying undeniable complexity. The Grenache portion of the blend contributes cranberry and raspberry candied fruit notes, while the Syrah delivers darker fruits and savory characteristics. Mourvedre enhances the structure and richness of the body and provides delicate aromas of violets. The partially carbonic macerated Cinsaut brings liveliness and tropical fruit flavors to the blend. Try pairing with a smoked salmon dish with cranberry sauce and grilled portabello.

Lively and floral, with fresh raspberry, garrigue and violet accents that build structure toward medium-grained tannins. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. Drink now through 2028. 2,300 cases made.

Grenache makes up 55% of this wine, with the rest Syrah (19%), Mourvèdre (17%) and Cinsault. The aromas rise out of the glass, with notes of raspberry, flower, white pepper and orange slice. Light, elegant red fruit flavors follow, almost tasting like a Pinot Noir. It shows an appealing sense of balance.

A blend of 55% Grenache, 19% Syrah, 17% Mourvedre, and 9% Cinsault, the 2018 Sinister Hand from Owen Roe sports a deep ruby/purple color as well as great notes of peppery herbs, new leather, blackberries, and raspberries. Medium-bodied, nicely textured, with the purity and freshness of the vintage, it has light tannins and is already hard to resist. Nevertheless, I suspect it will evolve for 4-6 years with no issues.

Medium red. The nose combines peppery medicinal herbs and slightly liqueur-like red cherry and raspberry aromas, with the Grenache element dominating today. An easygoing wine with red fruit, spice and herb flavors offering immediate appeal. Finishes with a firm dusting of essentially smooth tannins and good subtle length. Lacks only the complexity and urgency for 90 points. A bit fatter than the 2017 version last year but not quite as juicy or delineated.
