Our 2013 Ryan’s Red is now available in the tasting room! Ryan’s Red has been one of our most popular dry reds since it was first introduced. The 2013 vintage delivers rich aromas of red cherry, balanced fruit flavors and a hint of black pepper on the finish. It goes great with BBQ pork ribs so I’ve included a recipe below that I whipped up the other day.
Ryan’s Red is December’s Wine of the Month. When visiting Arché, Club 228 members can get a bottle of Ryan’s Red, a glass of wine of the member’s choice and a snack, all for just $20 + tax.
