Andrew Will 2007 Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Red Wine (Red Mountain)

  • Cellar Selection
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $53
A completely different blend from the winery’s 2006 Ciel, this reflects Chris Camarda’s growing enchantment with Cabernet Franc, which is now 45% of the blend. Most of the rest is Merlot—a Right Bank style. The concept works. It captures the sleek minerality of the site, and puts the fruit into tight, laser-like focus. The wine seems almost crystalline—sharp-edged…  — P.G.  (8/1/2010)

Andrew Will 2007 Sorella Red Wine (Red Mountain)

  • Cellar Selection
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $64
In this new vintage of Sorella, Cabernet Sauvignon is again right out front at 72% of the blend. Here the fruit seems more subdued, the wine tight, the dense tannins showing graphite and mineral more than new barrel flavors. It definitely needs decanting.  — P.G.  (8/1/2010)

Andrew Will 2009 Sorella Red (Horse Heaven Hills)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $75
Sourced entirely from the Champoux Vineyard, this Bordeaux-style blend is two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon. Yummy from the first sniff to the last sip, it’s packed with juicy berries and cassis, gracefully wrapped in layers of black olive, toast, clean earth and dark chocolate. Tannins are ripe and smooth.  — P.G.  (7/1/2012)

Andrew Will 2007 Champoux Vineyard Red Wine (Horse Heaven Hills)

  • Cellar Selection
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $53
A unique version of Andrew Will’s Champoux, this is more than half Cabernet Franc, with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot filling in the rest. Thick and tannic, yet perfectly ripe and almost silky, it coats the palate with black cherry, graphite, slate and a bit of chalk. All that said, the fruit more than holds its own against the terroir’s minerality…  — P.G.  (8/1/2010)

Andrew Will 2006 Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Red Wine (Red Mountain)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $55
This is darn near perfect, a matchless expression of berries, dotted with chocolate, vanilla and butterscotch. The berry flavors, highlighted with crisp acids, strike a pure note and ring true over a long, long finish. The blend is 40% Merlot, 37% Cab Franc, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot. Great concentration, finesse and length.  — P.G.  (8/1/2009)

Andrew Will 2002 Annie Camarda Syrah (Red Mountain)

  1. $58
An extraordinary Syrah, from Ciel du Cheval grapes. It’s supple and silky, yet retains classic fresh raspberry, cherry and boysenberry fruit that’s bright and crisply defined by natural acids. The panoply of flavors is seamlessly woven into chocolaty tannins, with a final kick of gravelly minerality.  — P.G.  (11/15/2006)

Andrew Will 2003 Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Red (Red Mountain)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $45
Spectacular, with opening young wine characteristics displaying naturally tart, spicy mixed red fruits. New barrel flavors of chocolate, smoke and toast are out in front, but right behind is glorious fruit—fully ripe, sweet and succulent, concentrated and rich. It finishes gracefully with nuances of iron filings and fresh herb.  — P.G.  (4/1/2006)

Andrew Will 2002 Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Red Wine (Red Mountain)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $55
Gloriously structured, this extraordinary effort blends 44% Merlot, 28% Cab Franc, 18% Cab Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot into a wine that reveals itself in sculpted layer upon layer of scent and flavor. Citrus peel, plum, wild berry, red currant and spice are set upon a base of rich mineral and rock, with precisely cut tannins. Hold 8–10 years.  — P.G.  (12/15/2004)
