I’ve always loved the Tapteil release from Cadence and the 2013 Tapteil is no exception. A Cabernet Sauvignon dominated blend that incorporates 18% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc, it offers full-bodied, beautifully pure aromas and flavors of black and blue fruits, graphite, leafy herbs and distinct minerality. More voluptuous and sexy than the reserved Ciel du Cheval bottling, it certainly offers pleasure today, but will be even better in 2-3 years of bottle age and will keep for two decades after that. - Jeb Dunnuck

A blend of cabernet sauvignon with merlot and cabernet franc, this is a powerful, dense wine. It leads with inky scents of anise, vinous and savory, the tannins so mouthcoating it feels as if they’ve carried some of the vineyard’s clay and loess right into the glass. (340 cases)

Wine Spectator, October 2016
Ripe and generous, with sandy tannins around a plump core of cherry and blackberry, gliding into a finely tuned finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2018 through 2023. 300 cases made. –HS

A swirl in the glass offers up a bouquet with good intensity revealing aromas of ripe black, red and blue fruits. Blackberry, cherry and boysenberry are mixed with dry peppercorn, leafy herbal notes and a brambly dry underbrush earthiness. The palate is full bodied and shows a combination of good structure and good complexity with a long finish. The tannins are present and dusty in texture but balanced by a mouthwatering acidity. 71% Cabernet Sauvignon 18% Merlot 11% Cabernet Franc.
