@rlmanzo Sorry…I forget we’re not all from Washington…ha ha! As a resident, if you do not know about the quality of Maryhill wines…you probably don’t like wine in the first place. Personally, I have been drinking Maryhill wines since the winery opened as I lived right down the road. I have never had a bad Maryhill wine (unless you count the one I left in the backseat of my car on a really hot summer day…but I drank that anyway.)
Tasting notes on the 2014 are per the description above but I would also add a bit of sour cherry/pomegranate, medium bodied with a smooth finish leaving traces of slight smoke, espresso, and cedar. I had cases of the last two vintages, no notes, but they’re all gone! As an everyday drinker, it goes quickly in our house…especially if guests are involved; everyone raves about it!
Value is tremendous at this price point. One of our local grocery stores has it on sale now direct from the winery for $9.99/bottle…they can’t keep it stocked.
Perfect food wine…from burgers and pizza to a nice cut of meat on the bbq, you can’t go wrong.
Hope that was more helpful than my original two liner!
@Allieroon@rlmanzo I’m jealous of your proximity to Maryhill!
I couldn’t say it better myself! Maryhill is a quality winery, in both destination for a visit, and their products. This is from their value side of their repertoire, but no slouch of an offering by any means. Instantly in for a case.
I just lit up Illinois. @InFrom same here I bought the wine.woot offering and each time we opened a bottle with friends, they were pleased, as were we. If the 2014 is similar to 2013, this is a very intriguing wine and truly enjoyable. At this price, it is a steal and an autobuy.
Good but drink within two years. I like this winery and have even visited. Nonetheless, I had some 2013 Winemakers Red from woot that I just opened and two of them had turned. I’ll admit storage was sub-optimal.
@kaolis@wistungsten Yeah, looking at my CT notes from the 2013 bottle I opened not long ago, the wine was fine, with a slight fizz. So drink up!
N.B. My storage was optimal, if one can call dwelling for close to a year in a drawer of my office file cabinet optimal.
just wondering if anyone else has had any problems with the corks. i bought a case and i just opened bottle #5 and every one of them has given me issues. i get them out a third at a time and even had to throw a bottle away because the cork broke into pieces and fell into the bottle.
Get yourself one of these and you’ll never have to throw a bottle away for that reason again. You will also be able to enjoy bottles with sediment without having to decant, which is mostly why I use it.
Haha, yes I have given away about a dozen of them and have another dozen on hand. Just re-stocked recently. I have even rubber-banded them to bottles I gave as gifts that I expected would have some sediment. (The Madeira was great too, what a treat!)
