Andrew Will is definitely a benchmark winery for this region and Ciel du Cheval a benchmark vineyard. Together the make a wonderful example of a "Right Bank" style Bordeaux Blend. Words like sharp, focused and precise come to mind when drinking this wine. It's wine in HD. Cab Franc brings his herby, minerally soul to the party counterpointed by Merlots soft supple texture and generous red and black fruit. This wine has plenty of structure for additional cellaring but is drinking quite nicely now.

Andrew Will makes some of the best wine in America let alone Washington State. Not big bruiser Cali style but elegant and refined. Ciel du Cheval is his 'right bank' interpretation. Lots of Merlot.

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.

Dark and youthful, this blends cabernet franc and merlot with a small portion of cabernet sauvignon. It leads with savory tar and mocha scents that meld with plump blue fruit. The flavors seem fat and rich at first, but the tannins supporting all that weight are so precise and tightly wound it's clear the wine is a long way from peak expression. Wait a year, then check it out with a hanger steak.

A bit rough around the edges, but not enough to detract from the gorgeous, focused blackberry, currant, green olive and dusky spice flavors that course through the focused finish. Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2012 through 2017.

A completely different blend from the winery's 2006 Ciel, this reflects Chris Camarda's growing enchantment with Cabernet Franc, which is now 45% of the blend. Most of the rest is Merlot - 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 - sharp-edged and reflective, with penetrating angles and offset flavors.

Exhibits juicy currant and blackberry flavors at the core. This firm-textured, sinewy wine lifts the fruit and cedary, earthy flavors through a pointed finish. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Best from 2010 through 2013. ... Wine Spectator.
