This year's blend is weighted more heavily to Cabernet Sauvignon than last year, and it is immediately apparent with the depth of the black fruit, spice and tobacco nose. Elegant, powerful, plush, and deep all describe the blueberry, blackberry and spicy palate. The finish lingers, carried by a rather more powerful tannic structure than normal for Ciel. 415 case production
