This wine combines fruit from 4 different vineyards located throughout the Yakima Valley-from Red Mountain to the most western point. By doing this we are able to offer a great overview of all that the Yakima Valley has to offer. A wine with dark fruit and graphite notes that is balanced with a plush mouthfeel.

  • 64% Elephant Mountain Vineyard, 14% Red Willow Vineyard, 11% Ciel du Cheval Vineyard & 11% Two Blondes
  • Aged 18 months 43% New French Oak

2020 Ciel du Cheval Cabernet Sauvignon Retail $50 Club Price $42.50

Justin's Thoughts: Our best Ciel yet! The wine had great vibrancy and balance on the nose and palate. It displays a great bouquet of ripe huckleberries and cassis intertwined with baking spices and a bit of earth. The palate has great volume and weight, with rounded tannins and an acidity that keeps the wine bright and vibrant. It is a great example of the power Red Mountain can bring, with a bit more finesse that Ciel du Cheval is known for bringing to this AVA.

  • 9 barrels produced
  • 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
  • 100% Ciel du Cheval Vineyard

2020 Ciel du Cheval Syrah Retail $35.00 Club Price $29.75

This was such a fun wine to make and we love how it turned out-incredible aromatics and a very smooth finish. This wine was made with 100% stems on and co fermented with 5% Viogner and left on the skins for 4 weeks. Fermented partially with Native Yeast and aged for 16 months in a neutral Puncheon. This will make the perfect Thanksgiving wine, pairing well with roasted Turkey and complimenting the bright red cranberry dishes. It is available only to wine club and on our website.

  • 1 Puncheon
  • 95% Syrah 5% Viogner
  • 100% Ciel du Cheval Vineyard

2018 Old Goat Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Retail $60.00 Club Price $51.00

Justin’s Thoughts: The 2018 Old Goat takes a while to open up and then there are notes of baking spices, herbs, fennel, ripe blackberry, and cassis. Good overall balance and breadth of palate. Acid is nicely integrated. Medium +, elegant, not excessive or overbearing. An excellent expression of Red Willow Cab. This is the best wine I can make, cellar 10+ years or enjoy now. 93 points from James Suckling.
