Winemaker Notes

Lithe, graceful, powerful, balanced. Great dancers or great wine, and certainly Ciel 2006. Fresh aromas of blueberry compote lead to flavors that are bright and lithe on the palate. The flavors are complex, deep and compelling. Tannins are soft, but present. This vintage of Ciel du Cheval will age gracefully for more than a decade, and do so on complexity and balance rather than sheer size.

Blend: 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot, 12% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

WS 93
Wine Spectator
Supple, round and generous, delivering a tempting mouthful of ripe cherry, mulberry, mint and exotic spice flavors that mingle enticingly on the silky finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2016. 415 cases made.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2006 Ciel du Cheval Vineyard is a blend of 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot, and 12% Petit Verdot aged for 19 months in 40% new French oak. Dark ruby-colored, it exhibits a spicy, toasty nose of violets, black cherry, and blackberry. Plush and layered on the palate, it has loads of succulent black fruit, enough ripe tannin to evolve for several more years, excellent concentration, and a lengthy, pure finish. It will be at its best from 2012 to 2021.
