FLIGHT 1

2006 Andrew Will Ciel du Cheval Vineyard – USA, Washington, Columbia Valley, Red Mountain A little tight on the nose, but it did have dark, black fruit and cigar box notes. There was quite a bit of spiciness and and wood notes in the middle, and it ended with a big shot of cinnamon. Extremely soft on the palate, the clove and spice flavors mix well with the black fruit. The finish has a nice cedar flavor. (91 Points)

2006 Andrew Will Champoux Vineyard – USA, Washington, Columbia Valley, Horse Heaven Hills Heavy on the graphite and blackberry, the nose also had lots of dark fruit and spice. More balanced on the palate than the nose, the spice, fruit, and earthy flavors played nice together. (90 Points)

2007 Andrew Will Sorella – USA, Washington, Columbia Valley, Horse Heaven Hills A lot of toasted oak and smoke on the nose, with blackberry and roasted coffee beans. Richer on the palate, than it is on the nose, the blackberry and black currant take center stage, with the espresso and smoke showing up in the middle. It was more creamy on the finish then I remember it being. (90 Points)

2007 Andrew Will Cabernet Sauvignon Cuvée Lucia – USA, Washington A full, rich nose of raspberry and black currant, intermingled with tobacco and dark chocolate notes. There is also a spicy meatiness towards the end. There’s a bit no restraint on the palate. The flavors are al there, but they’re hidden behind some fairly big tannins. (88 Points)
