About Our Ratings

Force Majeure 2010 Red Blend, Collaboration Series VI, Ciel du Cheval Vineyard, Red Mountain
Force Majeure’s Collaboration Series brings together what the winery refers to as a dream team of Washington winemakers who each make a single wine using fruit from Ciel du Cheval, one of the state’s most highly regarded vineyards. There are currently seven winemakers making Collaboration Series wines. “We’re thrilled to add the considerable talents of Chris Peterson to our unmatched cadre of world-class winemakers,” founder Paul McBride said. “We know his passion and commitment, matched with our meticulously-farmed fruit, will establish the Collaboration VI as a true benchmark for Red Mountain.” This wine scored 94 in Wine Enthusiast Magazine and 94+ in the Wine Advocate who said "A brilliant Southern Rhone-like blend of 56% Mourvedre, 38% Syrah and 6% Grenache that was fermented all in concrete and aged in neutral French oak puncheons, the 2010 Collaboration Series VI was made by James Mantone of Syncline Wines. Spectacular, with vividly defined aromas of blackberry, pepper, flowers, underbrush and licorice, it flows onto the palate with lively acidity, polished tannin and an elegant, seamless texture that has no hard edges and an overall classy, refined feel. Already approachable and complex, it will benefit from short-term cellaring and drink nicely for 10-12 years. Drink now-2025."

Comments about Force Majeure 2010 Red Blend, Collaboration Series VI, Ciel du Cheval Vineyard, Red Mountain:

I thought this was a big Rhone blend probably because of the majority mix of Mourvedre. On the palate you get plenty of blackberry and licorice. There is a little spice on the finish and it is a long finish. This is a very enjoyable wine now and can be cellared to develop more richness. I would recommend this wine for dinner entertainment.

    Comments about Force Majeure 2010 Red Blend, Collaboration Series VI, Ciel du Cheval Vineyard, Red Mountain:

    This is a powerful GSM blend. Full bodied with a long finish. On the palate, the blackberry and licorice are prominent with a hint of pepper at the end. If you can wait, decant for 30 minutes. Very enjoyable now but will reward you more with 2-3 years more in the cellar.
