Mark Ryan's Flagship Reds
Dead Horse, Long Haul, Lost Soul

This weekend marks the release of Mark Ryan’s flagship reds: Dead Horse and Long Haul. If you haven’t heard or read about the stunning 2012 vintage, now is the time to start listening. The ’12s we’ve tasted so far are incredible for how they combine plush fruit and the structure necessary to age for 10-20 years with ease.
