This was from last Friday night at a gathering of friends we opened the 2010 Andrew Will Ciel du Cheval Vinyard Red Wine. A Bordeaux Blend of 52%Merlot and 48% Cabernet Franc.
On the nose was black cherry, raspberry, cassis, chocolate, violets, graphite and dusty soil.
On the palate was good dark fruit, black cherry, blackberry, plum, black currant, licorice, bell pepper, spice, mocha, minerality and earthiness.
This wine is medium to full bodied with mediu + acidity and medium fine tannins that lead to a long dusty dark fruit finish. This wine seemed to be the hit of the night and was enjoyed by all. Please be safe and have a great weekend. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 23 days ago
