Ryan Patrick 2013 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Rattlesnake Hills, $50

By on September 2, 2016

ryan-patric-reserve-cabElephant Mountain Vineyard, high above the Yakima Valley in Washington’s Rattlesnake Hills, produced the grapes for this reserve project from Jeremy Santo. It offers spice, blackberries and black currants on the nose, then augments them with brambleberries and a hint of black tea, creating a sophisticated wine worthy of a thick New York steak seared and served medium rare. This earned a gold medal at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition.
