Winemaker's Notes:

This vintage is by far the best we have gotten from this vineyard. The work that we have done there with trellising, soil, water, and clonal selections is now bringing it even with the other vineyards from whom we source. The identity is fully apparent in this vintage through its soft texture and very full mid-palate. The depth of flavor reveals much about this vintage and those we hope to see in the future from Two Blondes. A lot of the work we have done here has been on an almost row-by-row basis as we sought to increase the root structure of the vines.

40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Cabernet Franc, 19% Merlot, 7% Malbec

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.
