Buy Owen Roe Pinot Noir Sharecropper's
Wine Enthusiast 91 points - This deservedly popular value bottle gets the star Pinot treatment-nine months in French oak, 27% new. It’s spicy and full-flavored, with resonant blue plum fruit, buttery toast and a tannic frame.  (Feb 2016)

Vinous 88 points - Limpid red. Jammy boysenberry and raspberry on the fruit-driven nose, accented by a hint of white pepper. Fleshy and supple in texture, with gently sweet dark berry and cherry flavors joined by a touch of bitter chocolate. The smooth, broad finish features gentle tannins.  (Oct 2015)

During the economic recession of 2001, and Owen Roe’s first couple vintages as a winery, Oregon Pinot Noir growers were facing hardship in selling their fruit, come harvest time. At Owen Roe, we wanted to help our farming friends and prevent missing out on such well-tended, beautiful fruit. We were presented with the difficult and costly purchasing of grapes to process, cellar and bottle, waiting several months to recover our costs on the finished wine. To overcome this obstacle, we decided to bring back the historical business practice of sharecropping, resulting in the aptly named wine, "Sharecropper’s.” This partnership meant that Owen Roe would take the fruit, make the wine and once it was sold, share the profits with our growers. This remains an important part of our history and due to the success of this wine; we are now able to pay our growers upfront.
