2014 Champoux Vineyard Red Wine

Andrew Will Wines

A combination of dark fruit intermingles with notes of cassis, mocha and wildflowers. This wine has a rich and smooth mouthfeel that exhibits fine-grained tannins while still maintaining a sense of lift and freshness. Classic example of Champoux Vineyard at its finest.

    Wine Reviews

    94+pts. Robert Parker...Sensational purity in its lifted bouquet of cassis, black raspberries, violets and spring flowers. There's a touch of graphite that develops with time in the glass; it has fine, polished tannin and an elegant, silky texture. Jeb Dunnuck - Wine Advocate
