Seven Hills 2012 Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Red (Red Mountain)

#98 Top 100 Cellar Selections 2015
Return to List

Hailing from one of the state's most esteemed vineyard sites, this wine is half Cabernet Sauvignon and just over a quarter Merlot, with the balance Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. The oak (40% new French) is dialed back, allowing rich, layered notes of plum, herbs, licorice, toast and coffee to rise with a firm scaffolding of slightly dry tannins supporting them. Still young, it will be best after 2018. Sean P. Sullivan
