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.

Andrew Will Winery was started in 1989 and is owned by Chris Camarda. The winery was launched out of a love for wine that Chris developed while working in the restaurant trade for almost 20 years. Named after his son Will and nephew Andrew, Andrew Will has been a major contributor in putting Washington State on the map as a world-class wine-producing region. Initially, the winery consisted of 900 square feet of rented industrial space in Seattle. In the early days, everything was done by hand from shoveling grapes into crushers, to labeling and delivering the wine. In 1994, the winery moved to Vashon Island, a short ferry ride from Seattle, where the present winery was built on 5 acres which also includes his home.
