Soos Creek Champoux & Ciel du Cheval
Greetings Washington wine fans,
We are so excited about the return of Soos Creek Champoux and Ciel du Cheval reds, long two of our favorite Washington wines.
We highly recommend both. Regardless of price, they are two of the best Bordeaux blends in the country.
Soos Creek Champoux Red 2013
$31.45 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($34.95 regular)
Champoux is widely regarded as the best Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard in Washington. It is one of the very few "sure things" in Washington wine. How does Soos Creek make such an amazing Champoux red for the price? Look at its peers and you'll find double-priced wines (or more) in all of them.
Ridiculously good, packed with unstoppably delicious black cherry, blueberry and cassis, with subtle accents of mint and espresso on the long, pure finish. Plenty of up-front, supple fruit for early drinking (especially with decanting) but I think this'll really shine after a couple years of aging, and will have no problem going 8-10 years. 67% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Cabernet Franc. A May Big Reds Club selection. - Marcus
$35.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($39.95 regular)
Ciel du Cheval Vineyard is right up there with Champoux as one of Washington's best vineyards (the leading candidate for #2); the 2013 Ciel gives the Champoux a run for top billing. Superbly concentrated sweet black raspberry and black currant, adding a regal structure and nuances of cocoa powder, graphite and loam. I'd definitely decant if drinking now and plan to let this nap in the cellar for a few years to reach its full potential. 60% Caberent Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc. - Marcus
