2013 Ciel du Cheval

This red blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc once again revisits the idea of creating a wine from Ciel du Cheval that doesn’t use Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine shows off an intriguing combination of red berries, plums, espresso, and river rocks on the nose. This full-bodied wine is complex, focused, and shows off a impressive balance from fruit coming from one of the warmest vineyards Andrew Will sources fruit from.
