2017 Andrew Will Winery Champoux Vineyard Red Horse Heaven Hills Washington USA
In 2017 we decided that the Cabernet from Champoux haslong been established and that we should recognize that onthe bottle. Hence the creation of a full new line-up of singlevineyard wines featuring our signature grapes. The 2017 Vintage is already shaping up to be vintage with a focus on elegance and freshness.
Rated 92 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Rich expressions exuberant blackberry and dark cherry fruit, elegant oak nuances and stylish dark red tones. Full-bodied in the mouth, with youthful yet still rigid tannins, there are plummy tones and a robust fruit core that oozes over the mid-palate with a tannic edge. The wine has finesse and the most prominent structure of the range of Cabernets, ending with a long, sophisticated finish. This wine has an elegance that will reward the patience of a decade in the cellar.

…Has pretty cassis, tobacco leaf, savory herbs, and chocolate notes as well as medium to full-bodied richness on the palate. It shows the forward, elegant, seamless style of the vintage beautifully. And despite already drinking nicely, it’s going to evolve for 10-15 years on its balance.
