Last night with good friends we open this beautiful Walla Walla Washington Bordeaux Blend the 2011 Tamarack Cellars Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Reserve Red Blend. 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and 29% Cabernet Franc.

On the nose there is brooding ripe dark fruit, black cherry, blackberry, licorice, graphite, spice and a pleasant earthiness.

The taste is rich with dark fruit, black cherry, blackberry, clove, black pepper, licorice and an earthy complexity.

This wine is full bodied with medium + acidity, a pleasing mid palate, medium chewy tannins that lead to a long lasting finish. The wine went over well and was a hit with everyone. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a safe work week ahead. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷
