Mark Ryan Monkey Wrench Red 2018
COLUMBIA VALLEY, WASHINGTON
Cabernet Sauvignon makes up just over two- thirds of this wine, with the rest Merlot (18%) Cabernet Franc (13%) and Petit Verdot.
Accessible for today, depth to cellar. Presenting with dark, luscious black fruits on the nose, 2018 Monkey Wrench progresses into a voluptuous mouthfeel with cherry, baking spice, and blueberry compote on the palate. Well balanced acidity combines with velvety tannins and deep flavors continue with a lengthy finish.
About the Winery:
Mark Ryan McNeilly founded Mark Ryan Winery in 1999. He started this journey with a few tons of grapes in a friend’s garage with the goal of making the best wines in Washington State. Largely self-taught, Mark honed the craft of winemaking through rigorous study and the welcomed advice of some of the area's most experienced producers.
Over a decade later, Mark Ryan Winery has grown in size, earned acclaim from wine-lovers and critics alike, and garnered respect from the state's elite producers. The goal, however, remains the same. Make delicious wines that represent the vineyard from which they come, making every vintage better than the last.
