2007 Vintage Tasting Notes

2007 Wine Advocate - 92 points - The 2007 Ciel du Cheval Vineyard is a blend of 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc, 13% Merlot, and 13% Petit Verdot which received the same elevage as the Taptiel bottling. Dark ruby in color with a bouquet of cedar, Asian spices, herbs, incense, cassis, and black currant are followed by a supple-textured wine with loads of spicy fruit, good volume, and enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years. Enjoy this lengthy offering form 2014 to 2027."

From the winery -

Super sensuous aromatics of spice and blueberries. Cool, brisk flavors of berries and plums leavened by bright acidity. There are many layers here, waiting to unfold with time in the glass. The finish caresses the palate with deep fruit and very fine grained long tannins. This will age gracefully for a decade or longer. - the winery

39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc, 13% Merlot, 13% Petit Verdot

Fantastic. Unique and full of character, with a prime pairing of rich fruit and soil that Cadence does so well.

2006 Vintage Tasting Notes

2006 Wine Spectator - 93 points - 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. - H.S."
