Ryan Patrick Vineyards Redhead Red
Sourced from Washington State's prestige Columbia Valley including the Wahluke Slope, Clifton and Northridge vineyards, this juicy, full-flavored red contains Bordeaux varieties with a little Syrah to round it out. For those of you who care about such things, the blend contains 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 17% Syrah and 5% Petit Verdot aged in American oak barrels (15% new) for seven months.
It has a wonderful balance of backbone and depth with hints of black cherry, blackberry, ripe raspberry and dark chocolate in the complex aromas and flavors. Seven months of oak aging impart subtle tannins that are present but not overpowering, allowing the ripe fruit character to be the star. This wine is smooth but doesn’t sacrifice depth or character, making it a supremely great value for just $14!
