2015 MCM Wine Company Majestica Red Blend – Columbia Valley.............…$25
The decision to blend is always designed to maximize the effects of the components. Luckily this vintage gave us six interesting wines from four outstanding vineyards. We knew they would marry over time to form this deep rich wine with herbs and spices reflecting their varietal history and site. Dark berries and cherries overlaid with a dash of the French countryside on a dew drop morning with soft tannins creating an enjoyable lingering finish.

  • 57% Cabernet Sauvignon (40% Stone Tree Vineyard, 10% Heart of the Hill Vineyard, 7% Dineen Vineyard) 
  • 17% Petit Verdot (Stone Tree Vineyard)
  • 14% Merlot (Ciel du Cheval Vineyard)
  • 12% Cabernet Franc (Dineen Vineyard)

The 2015 Red Blend Majestica is another winner, checking in as 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Petit Verdot, 14% Merlot, and 12% Cabernet Franc that spent 22 months in barrel. Blue fruits, leafy herbs and tobacco, hints of spicy oak, medium body, and terrific purity all define this beauty and, as with the Syrah, it's a smoking value. Drink this beauty over the coming 5-7 years. There are 125 cases produced. Reviewed by Jeb Dunnuck
