Last night with friends our second wine was another beautiful Bordeaux Blend a Right Bank Blend this time also from the Ciel du Cheval Vineyard. The 2010 Andrew Will Ciel du Cheval Red Blend 52% Merlot and 48% Cabernet Franc. Andrew Will from Vashon Island, Washington is one of my favorite producers. Chris Camarda since 1989 has blended wine and his wine he says "I am not interested in the similarities of my winesbut the differences. The different identities of our vineyards and varietals which explore the identity of Washington State as distinct as California or Bordeaux." I think he does this very well. On the nose I got black cherry, red raspberry, cassis, fresh herbs, violets and fresh earthy soil. On the palate there is black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, black currant, licorice, green bell pepper, iron and rich tolled soil. The wine is medium to full bodied with medium + acidity, medium + soft velvety tannins that lead to a long excellent complex finish. Have a great coming week, be safe and continued well wishes. Nostrovia!
