Andrew Will Winery Two Blondes Vineyard Red 2007
The 2007 Two Blondes is sourced from a vineyard planted and owned by Camarda in Yakima Valley. Its blend is 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Cabernet Franc, 19% Merlot, and 7% Malbec It offers up the most complex and complete aromatics of the single vineyard offerings with its array of sandalwood, lavender, incense, smoke, espresso, cassis, and black currant. Velvety-textured, layered, and opulent, this concentrated, lengthy, full-throttle effort should easily see its 25th birthday.
This Two Blondes is the best ever—powerful and ripe, with a plush mix of raspberry and strawberry fruit, tart and tangy and mouthfilling. This wine has a huge midpalate, but doesn’t stop there; as it slowly winds through a full-throttle finish, threads of chocolate, coconut, caramel and coffee appear. The flavors go on for several minutes.
This is a blend of cabernets sauvignon and franc with merlot and malbec. Its macerated fig component hints at tar and sassafras, air bringing out a finely wrought scent of evergreen. The dark fig and blueberry flavors are dense and fruit-driven, the texture pliant and ripe. The wine finishes with impressive length and enough fruit tannin to match a rouladen of beef.
