This precocious vineyard is finally showing strength
and a youthful complexity that I much admire in other
wines. I like its assertive nose and exuberant body as
well as the clean finish. The wine has much Cabernet
Franc in it yet seems to have that herbal and mineral
side to it that I look for in the wines I taste and buy. I
was not sure how this vineyard would go but with all
the patience of a saint, Chris Hoon the vineyard
manager, has brought to Andrew Will a truly complex
and well ripened fruit. We continue to work row by row
with this area and we are hopeful that in a few years the
growing reputation which this much maligned part of
Washington has had in the past will morph into a truly
compelling area for growing Merlot, Cabernet France
Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, and Petite Verdot.
"The 2006 Two Blondes Vineyard is sourced from a vineyard in Yakima Valley owned by Camarda. It is a blend of 43% Cabernet Franc, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 28% Merlot. It offers up aromas of balsam wood, cinnamon, sage, incense, black cherry, and black currant. This is followed by supple, ripe wine with fine-grained tannins, savory flavors, and excellent balance. Dense and concentrated, it will continue to blossom with another 2-3 years of bottle age and offer a drinking window extending from 2011 to 2023.
The Wine Advocate
"Good bright ruby-red. Musky aromas and flavors of sweet dark berries, truffle and smoke. Quite lush and sweet, but with enticing inner-mouth lift and a bright spicy quality to the fruit flavors. I find this distinctly fresher and suaver than the 2005 bottling. Rich, firmly structured wine with fine tannins to support bottle aging. Chris Camarda has taken his wines to a new level of freshness and consistency with the 2006 vintage, thanks in large part to the installation of new heating and cooling equipment in his winery, and the adoption of closed-top tanks, which has enabled him to make wines with better definition."
