Winemaker Notes

This beautifully refined wine is very pure and nicely ripe on both the nose and the palate. The black current, sweet dark berries, tobacco leaf, and stony soil characteristics are accompanied by hints of floral notes. Full bodied, this wine is seamless in texture with fine-grained tannins, noticeable grip, and a long memorable finish. It is a superb example what this vineyard and AVA can deliver.

Blend: 64% Cabernet Franc, 22% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
One of the more backwards, structured efforts, the 2012 Champoux Vineyard is a blend of 64% Cabernet Franc, 22% Merlot and 14% Cabernet Sauvignon that was raised in 35% new French oak. Full-bodied, serious and loaded with tannin, it offers impressive currant and darker fruits, tobacco leaf and crushed rock like aromas and flavors that continue to gain depth and richness with time in the glass. It should hit full maturity at around age 10, and nicely for a decade or more after that.
Rating: 94+
W&S 94
Wine & Spirits
The 2012 Champoux is about two-thirds cabernet franc, with the balance merlot and cabernet sauvignon. It’s dark and warm at the outset, with scents of plums glazed with warm brown sugar, a hint of mocha emerging with air. The texture is a marvel, dark, suave, as plush as suede, with a lean mineral frame that gives the wine its length and gravitas. Cellar it for a year, then serve with steak.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Bright and tangy, with a sharp edge to the red pepper—accented red berry flavors, followed by blueberry and plum notes that emerge gradually. Finishes with finesse against fine tannins. Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

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.
