Tamarack 2015 Red Blend Red Mountain

Ciel du Cheval Vineyard located in the Red Mountain Appellation was the first vineyard planted on Red Mountain in 1972.  Owner Jim Holmes farms the vineyard on this revered site and credits the success of Ciel du Cheval, to “dirt and climate, climate and dirt.” This particular vintage is a beautiful blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, 12% Petit Verdot, and 12% Merlot. Aged in 100% French oak, 50% new and 50% 2nd vintage barrels coopered from select forests of Boutes, Sylvain, Taransaud for 24 months.

Mr. Wonderful's Notes

Aromas of dark berries, acai, dark chocolate and beautiful dark components evolve into dried violets and dried herbs. On the palate red cherry explodes with chocolate hues that is well integrated with notes of herbal spices and savory mole. The finish has notes of French oak and gripping tannins.
