Save 30%! Ciel du Cheval Vineyard is right up as one of Washington's best vineyards, without question. 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. 57% Caberent Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc. - Marcus
2012 vintage notes
The Ciel du Cheval blend often takes a backseat to its even more famous sibling from Champoux. But this wine is outstanding. A juicy and concentrated array of red and black raspberry, with layers of spicy black cherry and sweet black currant gliding through, adding dried herb and mineral notes through the finish. The tannins carry loads of flavors and, with the overall fantastic balance, will help this age for a decade or more. - Marcus
