MARK RYAN Red Wine 'The Dissident' 2016

The 2016 ‘The Dissident’ by Mark Ryan is a blend of largely Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Surprisingly the smaller parts of Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot are showing prominently right now on the nose, as sage and earthy tones come out in full force. The texture to the wine is really gorgeous, with very light tannins up front. Red cherry candy, sagebrush, Arabica coffee and red bell pepper flavors emerge, enticing the senses. This is a truly sensational wine that will cellar well over the next decade or so.
