Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Strong aromatics of stewed plums, black pepper, and earth introduce the 2020 Water Witch. This elegant wine is complex on the palate, with notes of crème brulée and spice layered over rainier cherries and black plums.

Vineyard Notes
In 2012, we partnered with Quintessence Vineyards to plant a 13.6-acre block on the south slope of Red Mountain. No expense was spared in the design and development of the site. We worked hand-in-hand with the Quintessence Vineyard team to transform the 13.6-acre site into a world-class vineyard through meticulous site selection, variety and clone selection, and vine density and orientation.
Winemaker Notes
This team effort culminated in the reincarnation of one of the original wines in the Mark Ryan lineup: Water Witch. After carefully selecting the top performing blocks in the 13.6-acre vineyard, we are very excited with the results. Once fermentation is complete, the wine is lightly pressed to barrel.
