Andrew Will Champoux Vineyard Red Wine 2010


SKU 22373


The texture this wine possesses carries through from start to finish. This is a forceful wine with power and grace from the Cabernet Franc. The Merlot in the wine adds fruit and a wonderful sense on the palate of freshness and red berries. Cabernet Sauvignon serves to knit the wine into a whole and provides, along with the other varieties, a wonderful lattice like structure that allows for the other flavors in the wine to present themselves. Very good nose for a wine so young.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a blend of Merlot (42%), Cabernet Franc (32%) and Cabernet Sauvignon coming from vines with an average age of 30 years. It has light but complex notes of cherries, plum, herbs, flowers and bittersweet chocolate. It's restrained and understated in style with seamless fruit flavors, mouthwatering acids and edgy tannins that need some time in the cellar to calm down.
