Editorial Reviews for Andrew Will Red Bordeaux Blend Horse Heaven Hills Champoux Vineyard
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 me

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.

Powerful, focused and compelling for its layers of black cherry, mineral, animal and spice flavors, swirling together on the beautifully constructed finish. This has presence, depth and distinction, with miles to go. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Caber... Wine Spectator.

The 2007 Ciel du Cheval is a blend of 45% Cabernet Franc, 40% Merlot, and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 40% new French oak for 20 months. Medium purple in color, it offers up an enticing nose of pain grille, pencil lead, herbs, olives, violets, cassis, and black currant. Ripe, smooth-textured, and mouth-filling, it has enough structure to evolve for several years. This lengthy effort will offer prime drinking from 2013 to 2027.
Bright ruby-red. Fruit-driven, complex aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, blueberry and dried herbs. Juicy and gripping, with penetrating acidity framing the berry flavors. Not a fleshy style but pure, vibrant, clean and long.
Lithe, focused and beautifully detailed, offering a gorgeous array of floral-accented blackberry, boysenberry and anise flavors, lingering easily on the deftly balanced finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2017. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 958 cases made. -HS (72% cabernet sauvignon, 15% cabernet franc, 10% merlot and 3% petit verdot) Bright ruby-red. Cassis, black cherry and berry skin aromas are lifted by a floral note. Supple, sweet and densely packed, with savory and floral notes adding interest to the smooth dark berry flavors, and ripe, harmonious acidity giving shape and energy to the wine. Youthfully medicinal in a positive way. Finishes with big, broad tannins and flavors of dark fruits and licorice pastille that dust the entire palate. This may ultimately merit an even higher score.
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.
