Mark Ryan The Dissident Red 2015
92-94 points Wine Advocate: "The 2015 The Dissident checks in as 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot. It sees just over 50% new French oak and is made in reasonable quantities, so readers looking to give this estate a try should grab onto a few bottles. It offers a broad, expansive, mouth-filling style that I love as well as classic cassis, Asian spice, toasted bread and graphite aromas and flavors. It's a terrific entry-level cuvee that over-delivers at the price."
As it says, Dissident stands shoulder-to-shoulder with many wineries' flagship wines, for far fewer dollars. The '15 is especially solid, with plush black fruits that cascade through the finish. - Marcus
