2018 Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Merlot
The Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Merlot is perhaps one of our most popular releases each year. “It definitely has a cult following,” remarks Will. “It’s one of the prettiest wines we make every year. It is very elegant with lots of finesse and tons of layers and complexity.” On the nose, there are deep fruit tones, dark chocolate, and perhaps a bit of baking spice from the oak, which suits this style of wine. The palate is rich with red fruit, showing that classic Red Mountain characteristic. Charlie, a huge fan of Merlot, adds: “this is what Merlot can be. It shows the full potential of the varietal and is definitely one of my favorite wines of the line up. You just can’t go wrong with this selection.” Drink now through 2029.
