Why this wine made the cut…
Deftly balances flavor and restraint, not always the case with Cabernet Sauvignon

GRAPE VARIETAL(S)
Cabernet Sauvignon
100% Ca-ber-NAY So-vee-NYON
Cabernet Sauvignon origins are from the Gironde in southwest France, but is now planted across the world in climates that accommodate this late ripening grape. It is the dominant grape in wines made in Bordeaux’s Médoc and Graves regions. This small, thick-skinned grape, produces darkly colored wine, high in tannin and relatively high in acidity with hallmark aromas of blackcurrant and can stylistically change from austere in its youth to lush depending on the region, and winemaking style.

Andrew Will

Vashon, Washington

In 1989, Chris Camarda started the Andrew Will Winery in a tiny, makeshift 600-square foot facility. The winery has grown into a boutique winery making 4500 cases per year of some of Washington’s finest wines.

Mr. Camarda carefully sources grapes from the best vineyards across Washington, focusing on an old-school approach with the terroir as guiding light. He then blends his wines from different sites, with a focus on creating a wine where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. 

When Mr. Camarda started the winery, he named it after his son Andrew and nephew Will who recently took over the primary winemaking duties, continuing a legacy of making compelling and age-worthy merlot and cabernet.
