Well well well...
Look what showed up on our tasting table yesterday: THE LAST Tyrus Evan Ciel du Cheval Claret made, 2015. Last year's resounding success with the 2012, 2013 and 2014 vintages have kept requests pouring in.
Made from one of Washington's best vineyards, Ciel du Cheval, by one of the country's most famous winemakers, Ken Wright. Priced to fly, once again.Tyrus Evan Ciel du Cheval Claret 2015 - BUY NOW

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.
About Ken Wright and Tyrus Evan
Ask Oregon Pinot fans if they've heard of Ken Wright and 95% (or more) will answer "yes."
Ask Washington wine fans about Tyrus Evan and you'll likely not find similar results. Sure, Tyrus Evan has received some great press for Syrah (95 points from Wine Spectator for the 2008 vintage) but they've generally flown well under the radar. Few make the connection between world-famous Ken Wright and Tyrus Evan but both are made by Ken in Carlton, Oregon. In 2003, Wright launched Tyrus Evan (the middle names of his two sons) as a complementary winery to Ken Wright Cellars, at which only non-Willamette Valley wines would be made. He sourced fruit from Seven Hills Vineyard in Walla Walla and until the 2015 vintage, Ciel du Cheval Vineyard on Red Mountain.
We're looking forward to helping you with an order. Thanks for your support and happy kick off to Washington Wine Month!
