Andrew Will Ciel du Cheval 2011
Wine EnthusiastHalf Merlot and half Cabernet Franc, this firm, minerally, tightly wound Bordeaux-style blend seems anchored in the latter grape. Lovely whiffs of coffee grounds, wild berry and currant, stiff acids and sculpted tannins work together to craft a complex red.
Wine SpectatorThis firm textured version offers a plush core of red berry and cherry flavors, shaded with sweet spice notes as the finish lingers. Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Drink now through 2018. 790 cases made.
