2004 Cadence Ciel du Cheval Vineyard

2004 Cadence Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Red Mountain Washington Bordeaux Blend 39% Cabernet Franc 32% Cabernet Sauvignon 21% Merlot 8% Petit Verdot Very aromatic with warm red fruits and brown spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, very soothing, medium body, decent structure, more tannic than acidic, nicely balanced, palate is very savory, with a good dose of tobacco leaf and herbs, red cherry, hints of licorice, cedary, very smooth, just a bit lean but aging nicely with some secondary development. Very nice birthday wine. Lots of respect for the producer here! Small production, super passionate guy. Wish him well. N 9+ P 8 C 8+ B 8+ S 8 = 92/100
