I’m always down for a bottle of Canvasback as I find it to be consistently good. I enjoy the robust, ripe red & black fruits, the notes of cedar and wood shavings, menthol and baking spices, and the seductively sweet notes of burnt brown sugar, molasses, and Luxardo syrup. While it’s on the higher end of the price I consider reasonable for this selection, it’s still agreeable in my opinion. — 3 days ago
This is very close to 4.5 after couple of hours decant. It had the power and finesse to enjoy now, and the balance and structure to age further. My previous note applies.
I will try to open my remaining 2 bottles once every couple of years, if I can resist. — 7 days ago
Wow, do I love a Washington state wine!
Roasted hazelnut nose, with a couple of char ones on the mix.
Large, bold body, light berry, fruit leather, smoke, slate, and mirrors.
This is a wine that enjoys company, and I am lucky to dog sit my Sister in laws Ewok for a couple of days..

Wow!! This is tasting like heaven. The nose is still tight even after aeration, but you can pick up all the flavors there with a little patience: ripe strawberry, leather, cacao and espresso notes followed by some ripe red plum finish off the palette. This is heady, decadent wine worth every single penny. Yum!!! — 10 days ago
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! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 22 days ago
