Mark Ryan 2010 The Dissident Red (Columbia Valley (WA))

Editors' Choice

The Dissident blend has morphed in 2010; here it is 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Syrah, 22% Merlot and small amounts of Cab Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. It's a more elegant, refined style, reflective of the vintage, and it works well to deliver supple, sleek and bracing flavors. Mixed herb and blackberry along with nuanced notes of earth and barrel (roughly half new) move gracefully across the palate. Delicious now, but should improve with a few years of cellaring as well.
