2016 Ciel du Cheval Merlot
Judiciously spiced with fragrance of pipe tobacco and oak aromas intertwined with orange peel and hard candy notes. The intense and concentrated personality of this ultra-premium Red Mountain, Ciel Du Cheval vineyard Merlot is filled with racy cherry, orange and cranberry flavors. Juicy acidity augments the lengthy, fruit-filled finish.
This is always a favorite among wine enthusists - pairs beautifully with most any beef or lamb dishes but will do nicely with pizza for a real treat too.
The ageability on this Merlot easlily is 5-10 years without a doubt.
