Description 

Cotes De Ciel Winery
This Cabernet Sauvignon was made in a very simple straight forward manner. A single clone of Cabernet Sauvignon was used: UCD 8. Most of the state's great Cabernet's are made from this clone. Indeed most of the Cabernet grown in Washington is the UCD 8 clone. Two-thirds of the wine was fermented in open top fermenters. The remaining one-third of the wine was fermented in an oak roller fermenter. The wine was then placed in 100% New French Oak and allowed to age for 22 months. This produced a wine with all of the trademarks of Ciel du Cheval -- big fruit flavors balanced by oak, fine yet intense tannins that give a big mouthfeel and a long finish.


Ripe and generous, this wine has an intense nose with notes of berries, plums and cassis, balanced by oak aromas. The palate has fine and intense tannins that are gentle and fill the mouth. The long finish lingers pleasantly. 93 pts, Wine Enthusiast.


Limited production with only 74 cases produced.
