Andrew Will Red Bordeaux Blend Horse Heaven Hills Champoux Vineyard 2009
darky almost opaque black tinged ruby - vanilla and green pepper explode from the glass, oaky smoky pipe tobaccy,balsamic vinear, cherry coke, baked plum, creme de cassis all follow - sweet attack, lots of red fruits, good acids and tons of soft tannins, medium full mouthfeel with a bit more obvious alcohol here, eucalyptus top not over the curranty fruit with notes of roast meat and vanilla, good if indistinct fruit with an abrupt finish that leaves tanin and alcohol evident. Good in it's style and not at all over blown yet still too much for meAdd winemaker's notes

great fruit nose....on the palatte is is very silky with hints of vanilla....very long finish
Nice wine - the Cab Franc leaves a clear taste, although its primarily Cab Sauv dominated. Cheaper than the Champoux blend, this is a nice alternative.
My favorite wine from Andrew Will - the Cab Franc dominates and is full of expression. Peppery with delicate lilac flavors. Very nice and balanced.
I think a better name would have been two brunettes ;o) This is a hearty wine that is surprising in its velvety finish. Elegant but not stuffy. A very good wine for the price.
Three and a half glasses

Champoux 2007 - Andrew Will: Champoux 2007 - Rotwein von Andrew Will WineryDer Andrew Will Champoux 2007 ist ein Blend von 4 verschiedenen Bordeauxweinen aus dem Weinberg Champoux, bei Seattle. Seinen unwiderstehlichen Charme verleihen ihm sein Körperreichtum und sein wohlgerundetes Fruchtprofil. Als extra erlesene Geschmacksnuance erleben wir bei ihm einen leichten Anflug von Teer, ein Hinweis auf extraktreiche Rotweine besonders großer Jahrgänge. Hinzu kommen Aromen von Waldbeeren mit starken Anklängen von Heidelbeeren, welche einen Eindruck von Reife und üppiger Fülle bewirken.Weingut: Dominus EstateLand: USARegion: Washington StateRebsorten: 19% Cabernet Sauvignon, 52% Cabernet Franc, 21% Merlot, 8% Petit VerdotInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,75 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,25 g/lRestsüße: trockenEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18°CFassreife: in Barriques gereift (21 Monate) Rotwein > USA > Washington State
The 2005 Ciel du Cheval is composed of 40% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc,14% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 6% Petit Verdot. It offers up darker black fruit aromas and flavors with significantly more structure, grip, and power. It exhibits layers of spicy black fruits which should become increasingly opulent and glossy as it develops in the bottle. Give it a minimum of 5-7 years in the cellar and drink it through 2030.
Fashioned from 60% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Franc, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 7% Petit Verdot, the 2002 Ciel du Cheval Vineyard is an exceptional wine. Its aromas burst forth with red cherries, raspberries, blackberries, and spices. Medium to full-bodied, it slathers the taster's palate with gorgeously intense layers of lush red fruits and dark cherries. Deep, powerful, refined, and seamless, this wine reveals a lengthy, fruit-packed finish. Projected maturity: 2007-2019.
Gloriously structured, this extraordinary effort blends 44% merlot, 28% cab franc, 18% cab sauvignon and 10% petite verdot) into a wine that reveals itself in sculpted layer upon layer of scent and flavor. Citrus peel, plum, wild berry, red currant and spice are set upon a base of rich mineral and rock, with precisely cut tannins. Cellar Candidate (8-10 years).
A completely different blend from the wineryandrsquo;s 2006 Ciel, this reflects Chris Camardaandrsquo;s growing enchantment with Cabernet Franc, which is now 45% of the blend. Most of the rest is Merlot andmdash; a Right Bank style. The concept works. It captures the sleek minerality of the site, and puts the fruit into tight, laser-like focus. The wine seems almost crystalline andmdash; sharp-edged and reflective, with penetrating angles and offset flavors.
