Soos Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Ciel du Cheval Vineyard 2003

Member Review by Christy Canterbury MW:

A vast array of aromas develops with aeration, starting with beef jerky, iron, rosemary and black pepper and continuing on with grilled wild game and burning Cuban cigar. Smartly structured with a light tannic grip and refreshing acidity, this wine has a way to go.

We established our winery in 1989 on the belief that the vineyards of Eastern Washington were capable of producing world-class vinifera wine grapes. The recent accolades for Washington state wines certainly confirms the extraordinary terroir of our vineyards. By starting our winery at a relatively early time in the Washington wine industry, we were able to source our grapes from a few of the best and oldest vineyards in the state. We believe that blending wines made from different grape varieties and sourcing grapes from different vineyard locations will generally make a more balanced wine with better flavor complexity. However, in years when the wines of a specific vineyard are especially outstanding, we may also produce vineyard-designated wines. We believe that exceptional wines should age well. Therefore, most of our wines are built around a tannic backbone that has proven to give them a long life. Read less
