The grape, managed carefully, is the heart of any great wine, and Ryan Patrick Wines showcase the vineyards and work with the nature of the grape. For example, if the grape is big, they make it big, and don’t try to tone it down.
Because every varietal excels in different terroir, Ryan Patrick Wines sources its wines from a variety of vineyards and AVAs, including Elephant Mountain Vineyard, Sagemoor Farms, Red Mountain AVA and Red Heaven Vineyard. This way, the winery can source the best grapes for, say, a ripe chardonnay, or the best Syrah grapes that need a warmer climate.
Ryan Patrick Wines is known for approachable wines with a distinctive edge. Jeremy works with hand-selected growers with sustainable practices to choose grapes that fit the quality and style that customers have come to love.
“From a warm vintage, this aromatic offering has notes of candy corn, corn silk, pear and tropical fruit. It’s full bodied with sweet fruit flavors that have a creamy feel and lead to a lingering finish.” — S.S. (3/1/2015)
