The 2015 Ciel du Cheval Vineyard offers up notions of sweet red and black berries, licorice, orange rind and cigar tobacco. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, supple and layered, with a deep core of fruit, firm but fine-grained structuring tannins and a long, rich finish...displays impressive stuffing and should evolve beautifully in the cellar.

Bright, dark red. Alluring scents of blackberry, cassis, dark chocolate and licorice. Plush, suave, dry and seamless, with its fully ripe, slightly high-toned flavors of blueberry, graphite and tropical dark chocolate showcasing the breadth of the vintage. This big, plush blend finishes with superb persistence, building tannins and no rough edges. (ST)
The 2015 Ciel du Cheval Vineyard bottling from Chris Camarda is a blend this year of 63% Merlot and 37% Cabernet Franc and comes in at 14.5% octane. The wine offers up a beautifully refined, black fruity nose of sweet dark berries, cassis, cigar smoke, a touch of espresso, dark soil tones and a very understated framing of spicy oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and nicely focused, with an excellent core, impressive complexity, suave, ripe tannins and a whisper of backend heat on the very long and classy finish. This will age long and gracefully, and despite being a touch higher in alcohol than I would ideally like, there is nothing here to not be excited about!
