92+ points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Showing classic Red Mountain characteristics of dusty earth, graphite, savory fruits and dried violets, the 800-case 2013 Ciel du Cheval Vineyard is medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced, elegant and layered on the palate, with present, savory tannin. More closed, reticent and restrained aromatically, this beauty needs 4-5 years of cellaring and will keep through 2033. Made from 56% Merlot and 44% Cabernet that spent 18 months in 35% new oak, this is one of the cases where the terroir supersedes the variety."
