Winemaker Notes

The winemakers of Andrew Will have put no Cabernet Sauvignon into this blend. They have for a few years wanted to make a wine solely from Merlot and Cabernet Franc from Ciel du Cheval. They picked the right year to try as the two varieties I chose are strong in the 2010 vintage. A really finely set structure is aided by the transparent and yet deeply flavored fruit present in the 2010 vintage from this vineyard. Followers of the property will know that a refined and laudatory austerity is one of the hallmarks of the vineyard. Leaving out the Cabernet Sauvignon has brought the vintage into perfect tune.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 92
The Wine Advocate

Showing more ripeness and a kiss of sweet oak, as well as the Red Mountain tannin, the 2010 Ciel du Cheval Vineyard (52% Merlot and 48% Cabernet Franc) is a purple-tinged beauty that offers up ripe red plum, black licorice, iron, dried spices and hints of leather along with a medium-bodied, sweetly fruited and chewy feel on the palate. Admirably concentrated, with good tannin, it too will benefit from short-term cellaring and have a decade of longevity. Drink 2015-2020.

WS 91
Wine Spectator

Features firm tannins, with a minty edge to the dark berry and toast flavors, finishing with density and intensity. Needs time. Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
