  • Nota Bene Cellars Red Bordeaux Blend Red Mountain Ciel du Cheval Vineyard 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Nota Bene proves that you don't have to spend $50 for a wine from one of Washington's greatest vineyards. Big, and bold the wine has deep fruit and mando tannic structure, much more than I had expected for a $25 bottle. It shows all the refinement this vineyard is known for. A true value. Read More

  • Andrew Will "Ciel du Cheval Vineyard" Red Mountain Washington 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Andrew Will is definitely a benchmark winery for this region and Ciel du Cheval a benchmark vineyard. Together the make a wonderful example of a "Right Bank" style Bordeaux Blend. Words like sharp, focused and precise come to mind when drinking this wine. It's wine in HD. Cab Franc brings his herby, minerally soul to the party counterpointed... Read More

  • Sean Sullivan recently published and updated a list of his top 100 or so wines of 2012, with predictable results. Cayuse, Quilceda Creek, Leonetti all occupy the top 3 spots, followed by a few mid tier standards like Betz, Reynvaan, Maison Bleue, Grammercy. Well, I should say I'm just starting to get to know these names and also starting to buy ...

  • Cadence Red Bordeaux Blend Red Mountain Ciel du Cheval Vineyard 2005

    Snoothrank:

    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... Read More

  • Cadence Red Bordeaux Blend Red Mountain Ciel du Cheval Vineyard 2007

    Snoothrank:

    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... Read More
