Welcome to Easter weekend and lets start the weekend off right with a wonderful Bordeaux Blend from Andrew Will, the 2011 Champoux Vinyard continues to impress. This is a right bank blend of 54% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Franc and 18% Cabernet Sauvignon. The nose is beautifully expressive with notes of blackberry, black cherry, black currants, tobacco, licorice, chocolate, herbal notes, spice, violets and fresh tilled soil. On the palate there is well balanced notes of black cherry, blackberry, black currant, green bell pepper that I love oh so much, chocolate, graphite shavings, and floral notes. This is a full bodied wine with medium + acidity and firm outstanding gripping tannins. This wine does not disappoint. Everyone have a great Easter weekend and please take thing easy, be safe. Nostrovia!

Still such a baby, with some new oak noticeable. Excellent structure and balance nonetheless, dark fruit, fine tannins and bright acid to go perfectly with our Wagyu ribeye on the patio.
