Mark Ryan 2003 Gun Metal Red Red (Columbia Valley (WA))

This Bordeaux blend is 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot and 15% Cab Franc. The cooler region allows the fruit to ripen while keeping its grip and muscle. It's lush but not jammy; showing herb and wood (20 months in French oak), bacon and smoke. The finish is layered with cedar, leaf and resonant, plummy fruits. Beautifully long and balanced. 350 cases made. Paul Gregutt
