Subtly lifted mulberry and violet aromas with a wet-stone, mineral edge. On the palate, this has a generous yet elegant fleshy layer of plums and dark cherries, wrapped around smoothly approachable tannins. Deeply flavorsome, generous but bright. This is great drinking. 61% merlot and 39% cabernet franc. Drink or hold.
The 2014 Ciel du Cheval Vineyard is a rare blend for this estate that doesn't include Cabernet Sauvignon and is 61% Merlot and 39% Cabernet Franc. Offering lots of graphite, black cherries, roasted herbs and chocolate, this beauty is full-bodied, deep and rich on the palate, with beautiful concentration, ripe tannin and a great finish. (JD)

Like Will’s wine from Champoux (also recommended here), this 2014 feels tawny and reserved. A blend of merlot and cabernet franc, it’s a big, powerful red, with savory scents of creosote, tobacco and amaro, formidable tannins and mouthwatering acidity. Decant and pour with an Asian-style braised pork shoulder.
