2014 Locus Modo Red, as it was known by all who knew it, ran out on November 15, 2017. All 661 cases of the 2014 Locus Modo Red were ‘born’ in November 2015 in Seattle, Washington, as an ‘entry’ level Merlot, Malbec, Syrah and Cabernet blend but surprised all (including us) by its level of sophistication and ability to impress even the connoisseurs of wine. It got great ratings and reviews and sold like hotcakes at the Northwestern bars and restaurants as an accessible glass pour. It was preceded in inventory expiration by its superior, 2013 Locus Syrah from Keller Vineyards which is another sad story to tell but we are too verklempt to address that right now).
Locus Modo Red is survived by 2016 Locus Modo White, 2016 Locus Sémillon, 2016 Locus Rose, 2015 Locus Sud, 2014 Locus Red and 2015 Locus Nord.
Could there be another Modo Red in the works? Yes, yes, there could be. Stay tuned.
