    Winemaker's Notes:

    The wine has a mature ripeness that deftly balances its red fruit palate of red currant, plum, cherry, and loganberry. It is a harmonious wine with ripe and generous qualities in the fruit that do not overwhelm the structure due to its fresh acidity.

    Blend: 40% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc

    Critical Acclaim:

    In the same ballpark qualitatively, the 2009 Ciel du Cheval Vineyard, made from 40% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Cabernet Franc, delivers classic Red Mountain aromas and flavors with plenty of tar, licorice, baked earth, toasted spice and hints of chocolate all emerging from the glass. More full-bodied and rich than the 2010, with great back-end structure, it will deliver the goods for over a decade. Drink now-2021.
