Andrew Will Winery offers up a classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec from this estate vineyard in Washington’s Yakima Valley.
A remarkably complex offering, this wine offers a myriad of textures: from the dense opulence of the attack, to the freshness of the midpalate, to the velvet tannin of the finish. The flavor profile is both sweet and savory.
Figs and cassis meld with coffee and campfire notes, along with a strong impression of Herbes de Provence. The midpalate brings in fresher red fruits, and serious oak-influenced flavors of chocolate and allspice. The finish rolls on and on, bringing more pleasure than anyone could expect from a glass of wine.
