Mark Ryan’s newest red blend picks up the wrench and smacks you over the head! Monkey Wrench is a big, bold, brand new label, a serious wine that delivers massive flavor at an attractive price. Accessible for early drinking, especially when you give it some room to breathe in a decanter, there’s more than enough depth and structure to reward cellaring.
Lush, stacked black fruits mingle with blueberry compote and sweet herbs on the nose before you’re hit with the voluptuous, hedonistically rich dark fruit flavors. It all focuses through the finish with a surprising red fruited freshness, accented by baking spice.
47% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, 9% Petit Verdot from Red Willow, Phinny Hill, Olsen, Ciel Du Cheval, and Quintessence vineyards.
Monkey Wrench continues the Mark Ryan tradition of light-hearted, song-based wine names for serious, take-no-prisoners wines.
