Winemaker Notes

Bright medium red. Pungent aromas of red berries, blueberry and sandalwood lifted by a violet high tone. Very pure and penetrating, boasting superb fruit intensity and precision. Finishes firmly tannic, perfumed and very long, with excellent vinosity and grip. A lovely pure expression of Ciel du Cheval terroir.

Blend: 39% Cabernet Franc, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Petit Verdot and 11% Merlot

Professional Ratings

  • 92
    Showing more spice box, graphite, resin, dried flowers and both red and black fruits, the 2010 Ciel du Cheval Vineyard (39% Cabernet Franc, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Petit Verdot and 11% Merlot) is medium to full-bodied, rich and mouth-filling, with solid mid-palate depth, juicy acidity and ample tannin. Possessing the richness and texture that’s present in all of Ben’s wines, it can be enjoyed now or cellared for 5-7 years.
  • 91
    Fresh and vibrant, this deftly balances its red berry, floral and lime flavors in a sleek package. Refined tannins run under a lively finish. Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Merlot.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.

Red Mountain Wine

Yakima Valley, Washington

View all products

A coveted source of top quality red grapes among premier Washington producers, the Red Mountain AVA is actually the smallest appellation in the state. As its name might suggest, it is actually neither a mountain nor is it composed of red earth. Instead the appellation is an anticline of the Yakima fold belt, a series of geologic folds that define a number of viticultural regions in the surrounding area. It is on the eastern edge of Yakima Valley with slopes facing southwest towards the Yakima River, ideal for the ripening of grapes. The area’s springtime proliferation of cheatgrass, which has a reddish color, actually gives the area the name, "Red" Mountain.

Red Mountain produces some of the most mineral-driven, tannic and age-worthy red wines of Washington and there are a few reasons for this. It is just about the hottest appellation with normal growing season temperatures commonly reaching above 90F. The soil is particularly poor in nutrients and has a high pH, which results in significantly smaller berry sizes compared to varietal norms. The low juice to skin ratio in smaller berries combined with the strong, dry summer winds, leads to higher tannin levels in Red Mountain grapes.

The most common red grape varieties here are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah, among others. Limited white varieties are grown, namely Sauvignon blanc.

The reds of the area tend to express dark black and blue fruit, deep concentration, complex textures, high levels of tannins and as previously noted, have good aging capabilities.
