Winemaker's Notes:

Red licorice, plums and dark cherries are found in the aromatic profile of this wine. A blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot, and 4% Petit Verdot, it is medium to full-bodied, concentrated, and deep. Its complex, intense, and powerful core reveals flavors of blackberries, cassis, licorice, and road tar. Loaded with tannin, this structured effort also displays a long, highly expressive finish.
My Notes:

About Andrew Will Winery:

Andrew Will Winery was started in 1989 and is owned by Chris Camarda. The winery was launched out of a love for wine that Chris developed while working in the restaurant trade for almost 20 years. Named after his son Will and nephew Andrew, Andrew Will has been a major contributor in putting Washington State on the map as a world-class wine-producing region.

Andrew Will wines are labeled by vineyard with each wine a different makeup of the Bordeaux varietals. These vineyards, all in the Columbia Valley, include Camarda's own estate Two Blondes. He is part owner of the Champoux Vineyard and sources from Ciel du Cheval Vineyard.
