Winemaker Notes

Champoux is showing itself to be complex, having not only primary fruit flavors, but also components of flora and earth as well as mineral aspects. Each year since we have been making this wine we have enjoyed watching its journey as it changes in bottle. We are expecting more and more from the vineyard and feel that we are being rewarded for our demands from it.

Blend: 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Fashioned from 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot, and 4% Petit Verdot, the spectacular 2001 Champoux Vineyard sports an explosively spicy nose of black fruits. This hugely expansive wine coats the palate with lush, soft layers of cassis, candied blackberries, minerals, sweet earth, and roasting spices. Extremely generous, concentrated, and complex, this suave, fruit-dominated effort also possesses copious quantities of magnificently ripened tannin in its prolonged finish.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Refined, elegant style offers a lovely layer of currant, plum and herb flavors that glide smoothly over the refined tannins and through a long, lithe finish.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Another single-vineyard gem, solid, substantial and sophisticated, though still quite young and tight. Fruit flavors hint at raspberry and pomegranate, along with graphite and dry, lightly chalky tannins. The mix is roughly two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cab Franc, 10% Merlot and a splash of Petit Verdot. The PV is a catalyst; it puts things in play and makes the wine jump.

Andrew Will Winery, Washington
Andrew Will Winery Winery Exterior Winery Image

Andrew Will Winery was started in 1989 and is owned by Chris Camarda. The winery was named for nephew Andrew and son Will. Andrew Will 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. They make about 4500 cases of wine. In addition to the blends, Andrew Will makes from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and Sangiovese from fruit grown at Ciel du Cheval.

A large and geographically diverse AVA capable of producing a wide variety of wine styles, the Columbia Valley AVA is home to 99% of Washington state’s total vineyard area. A small section of the AVA even extends into northern Oregon!

Because of its size, it is necessarily divided into several distinctive sub-AVAs, including Walla Walla Valley and Yakima Valley—which are both further split into smaller, noteworthy appellations. A region this size will of course have varied microclimates, but on the whole it experiences extreme winters and long, hot, dry summers. Frost is a common risk during winter and spring. The towering Cascade mountain range creates a rain shadow, keeping the valley relatively rain-free throughout the entire year, necessitating irrigation from the Columbia River. The lack of humidity combined with sandy soils allows for vines to be grown on their own rootstock, as phylloxera is not a serious concern.

Red wines make up the majority of production in the Columbia Valley. Cabernet Sauvignon is the dominant variety here, where it produces wines with a pleasant balance of dark fruit and herbs. Wines made from Merlot are typically supple, with sweet red fruit and sometimes a hint of chocolate or mint. Syrah tends to be savory and Old-World-leaning, with a wide range of possible fruit flavors and plenty of spice. The most planted white varieties are Chardonnay and Riesling. These range in style from citrus and green apple dominant in cooler sites, to riper, fleshier wines with stone fruit flavors coming from the warmer vineyards.

Image for Bordeaux Blends content section
View all products

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
