Cadence Red Bordeaux Blend Red Mountain Ciel du Cheval Vineyard 2005

Member Review by Eric Guido:

After a double decant and an hour opened in bottle, the 2005 Cadence Ciel du Cheval showed a mix of sour cranberry, black cherry with dark chocolate and slate dust. Upon first sip, my palate was assaulted by massive waves of rich raspberry fruit, which started out jammy but turned fresh as it left flavors of mint and clove behind. The finish was long with flavors of wild berries. This bottle was so rich yet so balanced and fresh that I could have finished it myself. I love this wine.

Sweet ripe red fruit on the nose. Stony minerality, sweet oak and berry. On the palate, rich red ripe fruit. Substantial oak influence. Grippy tannins. Cocoa. Nice. (14/20 pts) France vs. US Blind Tasting 6/15/12
