Winemaker Notes

The wine possesses extraordinary aromatics and alluring fragrances. Notes of kitchen herbs, cassis, and light forest qualities are quickly perceived. The soft, middle palate is supported by sophisticated, complex fruit. Tobacco also comes to mind as a compliment to the underlying red and black fruit. The wine is fresh and lively with balanced tannins and restraint on the finish.

Blend: 48 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
2011 was a difficult vintage in general for Washington, yet the wines excel here, with solid depth and richness, and surprising concentration. Made from 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc, the 2011 Two Blondes offers first rate complexity, as well as classic Cabernet character. Sweet red and black fruits, wild herbs, tobacco leaf and hints of violets are just some of the nuances here. The wine is medium-bodied, pure, focused and elegant on the palate. In short, it’s a classic Washington Bordeaux blend to drink over the coming decade.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Supple, fragrant and deftly balanced, this displays mint-accented black currant and wet earth flavors on a open-weave frame. The finish lingers against polished tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2019.
W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
Two Blondes expresses coolness like few other vineyards in the Yakima Valley, this 2011 hinting at violets, pine and eucalyptus. The flavors run ripe through the coolness, though, gaining an added dimension from dark purple fruit, with a plushness that belies the vintage. A blend of 48 percent cabernet sauvignon, 40 percent merlot and 12 percent cabernet franc, this is assertive in its coolness; for a steak with chimichurri.

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.

Yakima Valley Wine

Columbia Valley, Washington

View all products

As the first recognized wine-growing region in the Pacific Northwest, Yakima Valley is centrally located within Washington’s vast Columbia Valley. The region also includes Washington’s oldest Cabernet Sauvignon vines, Otis Vineyard, planted in 1957, and Harrison Hill Vineyard, planted in 1963. Yakima Valley contains three smaller sub-regions: Rattlesnake Hills, Red Mountain, and Snipes Mountain and is ideal for both red and white wine production. In fact, Yakima Valley is Washington’s most diverse region, boasting more than 40 different grape varieties over about one hundred miles.

The cooler parts of the valley are home to almost half of the Chardonnay and Riesling produced in the state! Both are made in a wide range of styles depending on the conditions of the vineyard site.

But its warmer locations yield a large proportion of Washington’s best Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. The finest Yakima Valley reds are jam-packed full of red cherry, currant, raspberry or blackberry fruit, as well as cocoa, herb, spice and savory notes, and exhibit a supple texture, great body, focus and length.

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.
