Notes from Andrew Will:

We are still sourcing fruit from Ciel du Cheval Vineyard 26 years later, because it continues to make some of the most age-able and austere wines in our lineup. By using just Merlot and Cabernet Franc, we get wines that show off both the site and the varietals in a truly unique expression of the Red Mountain AVA. The 2015 vintage was the warmest vintage to date, with above average temperatures across the Columbia Valley. These warm temps led to an advancement of the growing season, leading to a harvest almost 2 weeks ahead of any recent years. Very warm temperatures starting in the spring and continuous through July/August, led into cooler temperatures in September allowing phenolic ripeness to catch up. Despite the heat, the wines from this vintage ended up with great fruit characteristics while maintaining excellent structure and focus.
