Mark Ryan McNeilly launched this second label in 2008 with The Vincent Red Wine, and it remains the flagship wine of the BTR brand. While the vineyard sourcing is not disclosed for this tier, the top-shelf Mark Ryan reds pull from more than a half-dozen of Washington’s premier vineyards – either on Red Mountain or prime Yakima Valley plantings. That explains why this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (25%) and Malbec overtakes many others at its pricepoint. Black cherry, mocha and light toast aromas lead to a deliciously balanced, medium-structured drink of plum, Craisin and pomegranate. There’s a lick of NECCO wafer in the finish of Montmorency cherry.
