Here's what they are...
2015 MCM Wine Company Majestica Red Blend - Columbia Valley
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. Bottled 7/29/17; 125 cases produced; Alcohol 14.24%
- 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)
Barrels: This wine was aged 22 months Export-style barrels, 14% new French oak from Ton. Vernou, the balance in seasoned French oak from Ton. Orion and Ton. Vernou, and seasoned American oak from Canton, Saury, and Alain Fouquet.

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
2015 MCM Wine Company Spectaculuxe Syrah - Columbia Valley
We crafted this Syrah blend around the magnificent fruit from four distinguished vineyards: Ranch at the End of the Road near on Red Mountain near Benton City and Arianses Vineyard and Stone Tree Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope near Mattawa. Distinct locations with climates all their own and two different clones contribute to a complex flavor profile of dark fruits, spices, savory edges, and a hint of floral notes from a significant helping of Viognier from Marsala Vineyard near Zillah. Bottled 7/29/17; 120 cases produced; Alcohol 14.1%
- 94% Syrah (43% Ranch at the End of the Road Vineyard, 40% Arianses Vineyard, 11% Stone Tree Vineyard)
- 6% Viognier (Marcela Vineyard)
Barrels: This wine was aged 22 months Export-style barrels, 17% new American oak from Canton Cooperage, the balance in seasoned French oak from Ton. Vernou, and seasoned American oak from A&K.
Tasting Date 04/11/2019
The 2015 Syrah Spectaculuxe (which includes 6% Viognier) offers an attractive, complex profile that carries plenty of spice-laced black and blue fruits, incense, candied violets, and hints of bay leaf. It's medium-bodied, has a layered texture, good acidity, and fine tannin, all making for a delicious, high-quality Syrah that offers loads of value. Reviewed by Jeb Dunnuck
