Winemaker's Notes:


#25 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008

The full texture and well-rounded fruit profile of this wine give it a compelling attraction. The middle palate sustains the well-developed structure of the wine and adds much to the over all sense of balance which the wine projects. Flavors of Tar and black fruit with blueberry accents bring out the sense of ripeness and sweetness, which this wine possesses. Not to be out done by the Ciel du Cheval this wine carries itself with great poise and bearing.

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.
