2018 Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Red Wine
Ciel du Cheval Red Wine is a blend that remains fairly consistent from year to year and stands as the only merlot-based blend in the Fidelitas line up. “We like the Merlot so much that we definitely want to keep it as that base and then part of this is an intentional effort to diversify our blends so that there is something different in each wine that we make,” remarks Charlie. Ciel du Cheval Vineyard is so elegant that it lends itself well to this type of blend. It is still a big, Red Mountain wine, just on the polished end of the scale, for us. There is that reddish black fruit that is consistent with Ciel du Cheval Vineyard, with Bing cherry notes jumping from the glass. Full, round red fruit notes, excellent concentration, and established tannins fill out the palate and create a lengthy finish. Drink now through 2030.
