Ryan Patrick Rock Island Red Columbia Valley 2014

Member Review by jtryka:

The color is a nice deep garnet in the glass. The nose is quite pleasant with notes of ripe, candied fruit, plums and cherries and marionberries, with a hint of cocoa powder and some faint floral notes. The taste is not at all what I expected, rather than a rush of jammy fruit I was hit with some smooth cherry cola and vanilla notes overlaid with just the slighted spice midpalate. The tannins are round and supple, making for a velvety, smooth dry finish that seems to last a minute or more.

Ryan Patrick Vineyards production facility is located in Quincy, Washington a stones throw from our prize winning Chardonnay vineyard along highway 28. Our vineyards are located in Trinidad, Washington where the conditions are ideal for growing and ripening some of Washington's finest winemaking fruit. Ryan Patrick Vintners produce wines from only the most promising vines. We carry this commitment to quality throughout the entire winemaking process. Traditional winemaking principles are paired with only the finest fruit. The result is wine that is balanced, well integrated and fruit forward. Our wines can be enjoyed immediately or cellared for additional depth. Craig Mitrakul began working in the wine industry 10 years ago after receiving his Master’s Degree in Food Science with an emphasis in Enology from Cornell University and his Bachelor’s Degree in Food Science from Rutgers University. Craig’s career began back East in Lodi, New York at Lamoureaux Landing Wine Cellars.

Craig has been an integral part in the winery’s recent successes and is proving to be one of Washington State’s most desirable winemakers, producing award-winning wines while maximizing efficiency within the winery.
