2014 Ciel du Cheval Merlot
Merlot from Red Mountain and even more so from Ciel du Cheval vineyard always tends to be very expressive and provides top shelf flavors. This Merlot is no different with its intense sweet oak aromas with hints of caramel, almond and smoke. Its dazzling array of cinnamon, brown sugar and chocolate flavors on the attack followed by enticing hints of dried figs. This wine is full of texture and carries it all the way to its long and lush finish.
