2017 Champoux Cabernet Sauvignon - Andrew Will Winery


Andrew Will Winery

In 2017 we decided that the Cabernet from Champoux has long been established and that we should recognize that on the bottle. Hence the creation of a full new line-up of single vineyard wines featuring our signature grapes. This vintages blend consists of Cabernet Sauvignon from multiple blocks of Champoux Vineyard and a little Petite Verdot. This wine was fermented and aged in 20% new French oak barrels and 80% neutral French oak barrels because we didn’t want to over power any of the classic Cab Sauv characteristics with too much new oak. 2017 was a solid vintage that allowed for full phenolic ripeness due to a cool second half of September which allowed for extended hangtime with minimal sugar accumulation.
