96 points Wine Enthusiast: "This riveting wine displays the exceptional finesse and precision that fruit from this AVA can deliver. It's Pinot noir expressed in the most subtle and demanding way. Beautifully orchestrated red fruits, sappy acids, lush spices, perfect balance and an immaculate mineral-soaked finish are all on display."
Showing telltale Ribbon Ridge dark berries and spicy accents, adding black cherry and and sweet earth undertones that sing through the expansive finish. This is more than a single vineyard Pinot noir; it is a tribute to winegrower Bryce Bagnall, who with his wife Marcia, purchased and planted this beautiful site in 1999. - Marcus
And more from Ken: The LAST Tyrus Evan Ciel du Cheval Claret! Made from one of Washington's best vineyards, Ciel du Cheval. Priced to fly, once again.Tyrus Evan Ciel du Cheval Claret 2015
$16.15 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($17.95 regular)
Why so cheap? After more than a decade making Ciel du Cheval Claret, Ken decided to focus even more on Pinot noir. He canceled his fruit contract with Ciel du Cheval (much to the delight of the long waiting list for the vineyard's amazing fruit) and priced the wine to make it move!
Opening with black cherry and red berry fruit exhibiting nice polish, picking up hints of tobacco, sage and black currant through the finish, which adds subtle grip.Ready to drink now with dinner and as a young wine, it will certainly improve with a little more time in bottle. 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot.
