Andrew Will Wine – Update

December 26th, 2009 · No Comments · Wine

Lisa got me a bottle of Andrew Will for Christmas. Details straight from Andrew Will‘s site:

2006 Ciel du Cheval
We were right to hold this wine back from it’s usual release date in the early fall. Already, it is starting to show the startling balance and beautiful austerity which are the hallmarks for Ciel du Cheval wines. Each year, we experience the paradox of perfectly ripened Merlot and Cabernet Franc in this warmer Cabernet site. This year is no exception. This wine has an almost obsessive appeal. For me the difficulty in describing the qualities in the wine is best overcome if the wine is seen as something magical and taken for that.
