Bottle 2 of 2. This one is not on the edge; it’s amazing! Wow. Not tart, bitter. Smooth, delicious, flavorful. Amazing. Note: 2007 can go either way. — 8 days ago

Involuntary Commitment

Columbia Valley Red Blend 2017

Ripe plums, both dark & red across the nose & palate. More about fruit than oak or spice. Mild tannins, but plenty of bright acidic structure. Declassified Andrew Will juice. — 7 days ago

Is this a reference to the notorious (alleged) smoke taint grapes snubbed by a wine producer that shall go nameless, by chance?

@David Shaw - I don’t think so, the original bottling of this in 2016 came about due to a major surplus in fruit from their vineyard sources, so I believe the name is tied to being “committed” & making even more wine. I haven’t heard a backstory related to smoke taint.

Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Cabernet Franc - Merlot Blend 2010

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! 🍷🍷🍷🍷
