Mark Ryan 2003 Bad Lands Red Red (Red Mountain)

An intriguing blend of two-thirds Kiona Syrah, one-third Ciel du Cheval Petit Verdot, this textural wine retains its Syrah aromatics but bulks up tannicly from the PV, which contributes green herb and eucalyptus spice notes also. Winemaker Mark McNeilly is on to something special here, though a small hole remains right in the midpalate. The finish resonates with an herbal/minty spice note. Just 97 cases made. Paul Gregutt
