Maryhill Winery 2015 McKinley Springs Vineyard Cinsault, Horse Heaven Hills, $40

By on September 15, 2018

The talented Richard Batchelor sourced his Cinsault from McKinley Springs Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills, and he came up with another winner. The 2015 vintage produced a wine with floral notes and hints of strawberry and dried fruit in the nose. In the mouth, it’s more plummy with a red tone to it, smooth tannins and a sweet fruit finish. Try it with escargot, stews and roasted meats. This won a double gold medal at the sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 220 cases
