The 2005 Champoux Vineyard is made up of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Petit Verdot. Purple-colored, it delivers an alluring perfume of pain grille, spice box, and violets. On the palate, it is layered, intense, and powerful. Its impeccable balance should allow it to evolve for up to a decade and drink well through 2030.
Andrew Will’s portfolio of Bordeaux blends draws upon some of Washington’s greatest vineyards for inspiration; none greater than this old vine Champoux. Dark and meaty, it’s packed with cassis and black cherry fruit. The tannins are substantial, the acids sharp and refined, the mouthfeel dense, almost thick, and layered with herb, leaf, smoke and spice. Let it breathe a good long time.
Seamless and harmonious, with beautifully articulated, ripe black cherry, cassis and violet-tinged floral notes that mingle with hints of cedar and dark chocolate as the finish sails on against polished tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2009 through 2015. (Web-2008)
