Any, and every fan of Washington wine needs to have this Cabernet. It is 2012 Manu Propia Ex Animo, the personal label from Mike Macmorran, winemaker at Mark Ryan. I have bugged Mike for literally months about its release.
When I look back on the last couple years there's one Cabernet that stands out as the most exciting smash hit, now across three vintages: Manu Propria. We've received incredible feedback and honest thanks -- customers are genuinely thrilled to have it.
Mike made a mere 165 cases, and we're the only source in Oregon.

I love this wine and guarantee you will too. Bursting with potent black and blue fruits accented by tobacco, graphite, violet, and an incredible herbes de Provence thread that begins in the nose and flows through the finish. It manages a perfect trinity of finesse, power, and elegance. You can enjoy the 2012 today -- I sure as hell did! -- and I can only imagine how good it will be after a couple years of age. From the outstanding and historically significant Red Willow Vineyard in Yakima, the 2012 is comprised of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc. A September Big Reds Club selection.
Manu Propria Ex Animo is from the Latin meaning "by my own hand, from the heart." It is Mike's statement to celebrate and exemplify Red Willow Vineyard.
