Cadence Red Bordeaux Blend Red Mountain Ciel du Cheval Vineyard 2007
Super sensuous aromatics of spice and blueberries. Cool, brisk flavors of berries and plums leavened by bright acidity. There are many layers here, waiting to unfold with time in the glass. The finish caresses the palate with deep fruit and very fine grained long tannins. This will age gracefully for a decade or longer.
Cadence is dedicated to showcasing the finest vineyard sites in Washington State. Our Bordeaux-styled blends are our interpretation of the best qualities reflected in Washington’s greatest vineyard terroir. We believe blending creates a balanced wine of greater character than the individual components. Our wines express the power, intensity or elegance of the vineyard reflected in the characteristics of the varietals on the vineyard site.
From one of the most famous vineyards in WA (and for good reason). The wine was tightly wound, still a bit young but showing beautifully already after some needed decanting. Blueberries and indian spcies in the nose as well as a bit of Franc funkiness (in a good way), the tannins are significant giving this wine great aging potential. For now the palette is fairly fruit driven, show blacker fruits than the nose, a bit of minerals to round out the finish.
