Les Chevaux, (French for "the horses") is named for the wild horses that once roamed the Horse Heaven Hills. This red blend is focused and generous, open textured and inviting, offering cherry, currant, red plum, and raspberry jam flavors. Foods with complex flavors match the complexity of red blends. Pepper steak, well seasoned beef or lamb, rich stews, pâtés and strong cheeses such as blue cheese and stilton, are great pairings.

Bright ruby-red. Black raspberry and dark cherry aromas are complicated by hints of flowers and menthol. Shows a bit more texture and floral lift than the H3 Merlot but still not particularly fleshy , nuanced or concentrated; harmonious acidity gives adequate energy to the middle palate. Blackberry and violet flavors show a subtle sweetness. Finishes with a fine dusting of essentially light tannins and decent length. (14.5% alcohol)
