Andrew Will Winery Champoux Vineyard Horse Heaven Hills 2005
#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.
