Available for:
The wine has a mature ripeness that deftly balances its red fruit palate of red currant, plum, cherry, and loganberry. It is a harmonious wine with ripe and generous qualities in the fruit that do not overwhelm the structure due to its fresh acidity.

Among all the latest 2009 releases from Andrew Will, the Ciel du Cheval is the most shuttered and in need of further bottle age. Tight and tannic, it is unusually herbal for this hot climate site. Even after many hours of breathing time, it remains stubbornly closed. Given the vineyard history and winery credentials, it seems highly likely to improve significantly with more time.

Firmly tannic, with a mouthcoating prickle surrounding toasty, leathery black cherry flavors, finishing with nice intensity. Needs time. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best after 2014. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Harvey Steiman, 2012
