Red Blend Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Red Mountain
This red blend of 56% Merlot, 44% Cabernet Franc once again revisits the idea of creating a wine from Ciel du Cheval that doesn’t use Cabernet Sauvignon. The Ciel du Cheval vineyard lies in the Red Mountain appellation; the vines are 27 years old on average. The wine spent 18 months in barrel; 800 cases produced.
This wine shows off an intriguing combination of red berries, plums, espresso, and river rocks on the nose and shows off a impressive balance from fruit coming from one of the warmest vineyards Andrew Will sources fruit from.
