2016 Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Magnum
Ciel du Cheval is one of the most historically significant vineyard sites in the AVA, planted by Red Mountain pioneer, Jim Holmes. For this showstopping Cabernet Sauvignon, Charlie selected Clone 8 from blocks planted in the mid-nineties, along with Clone 191 that was planted in 2002. The age of the vines, along with careful attention in both the vineyard and the cellar, give us a wine with exceptional finesse and structure. Bold black fruit, a recognizable Red Mountain earthiness, and well-integrated tannins come together to create a delicate and lasting finish. Drink now through 2030.
