  • Januik Syrah Ciel du Cheval Vineyard 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Smoky, and a little funky on the nose with some dusty soil tones and lots of macerated floral aromas and a hint of juniper. Nicely open on entry with clear flavors of wild black raspberry, blackberry and slightly medicinal floral tones which gain prominence on the backend. The tannin here are very well managed and this gains an attractive papery... Read More

  • Januik Winery Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

    Snoothrank:

    High toned and a bit floral on the nose with a little herb adding detail to the black raspberry and blackcurrant fruit. This is a bit oily and really quite floral and perfumed on the nose.

  • Soos Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Ciel du Cheval Vineyard 2003

    Snoothrank:

    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. Read More
