The 2006 Ciel du Cheval Vineyard is a blend of 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot, and 12% Petit Verdot aged for 19 months in 40% new French oak. Dark ruby-colored, it exhibits a spicy, toasty nose of violets, black cherry, and blackberry. Plush and layered on the palate, it has loads of succulent black fruit, enough ripe tannin to evolve for several more years, excellent concentration, and a lengthy, pure finish.

About This Producer

Following the winemaking traditions of Bordeaux has allowed Cadence to translate the Red Mountain appellation grapes they source into serious single vineyard wines. Both the "Ciel du Cheval" and "Tapteil" productions have structured balance of fruit, acidity and weight that promise initial satisfaction (decanted, of course) and cellar placement. The "Ciel du Cheval" is 39% Cabernet Franc, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, and 8% Petit Verdot. The "Tapteil" is 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, and 6% Cabernet Franc. Both burst with the mineral-laced black fruit and tobacco/cedar spice that is coming to define Washington State's Red Mountain AVA.
