Will Camarda



Our single vineyard blends explore the primacy of vineyard over varietal. Using the Bordeaux varietals from each vineyard, we produce blends to express that site. The differences between the vineyard wines are of particular interest.

2012 Sorella

Textured, balanced and rich, our signature wine is predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon from the Champoux Vineyard; 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 13% Cabernet Franc. The gorgeously nose shows a blend of cassis, graphite, river stones, tobacco leaf with hints of black currants and dark rasberry.

Technical Notes
2011 Sorella

The Sorella is an attractive balance of rich tannins, bright acids, and flavors. On the nose hints of limestone, anise, lavender, blueberries and violet are accompanied by generous and deep fruit qualities. The mid palate is possessed of textured tannins in harmony with a complex depth. The wine has a laser-like focus and shows elegant restraint from both start to finish.

Technical Notes
Two Blondes
2012 Two Blondes

This medium-full bodied wine is  50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc. This cooler sited vineyard with clay soils atop basalt bedrock provides standout Merlot and Cabernet Franc, in particular.  The bouquet is outstanding, bringing to mind black plums, dark currants, coffee, a touch of menthol, cigar smoke, and fresh herbs.

Technical Notes
2011 Two Blondes Vineyard

The wine possesses extraordinary aromatics and alluring fragrances. Notes of kitchen herbs, cassis, and light forest qualities are quickly perceived. The soft, middle palate is supported by sophisticated, complex fruit. Tobacco also comes to mind as a compliment to the underlying red and black fruit. The wine is fresh and lively with balanced tannins and restraint on the finish.

Technical Notes
2012 Champoux

A blend of 64% Cabernet Franc, 22% Merlot and 14% Cabernet Sauvignon. This beautifully refined wine is very pure and nicely ripe on both the nose and the palate. The black current, sweet dark berries, tobacco leaf, and stony soil characteristics are accompanied by hints of floral notes.

Technical Notes
2011 Champoux

The 2011 Champoux shows pronounced red and black fruit. Red currant, blueberries, and blackberries show through very elegantly. These qualities are backed up by both herbal and spice components such as cedar, and tobacco. Tertiary characteristics include both almonds and cinnamon.

Technical Notes
Ciel du Cheval
2012 Ciel du Cheval

A classic Red Mountain wine that is 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc. It is a remarkable example of a full-bodied wine that exhibits a superb balance and structure with complex layers. The nose of the wine shows a wonderful bouquet cassis, dark berries, and minerality notes. Gorgeous mid-palate which finishes with extraordinary concentration and length.

Technical Notes
2011 Ciel du Cheval

Like the previous vintage, the Ciel does not possess any Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. The wine exhibits hints of damson plum skin, smoke, cardamom and cinnamon. As the wine opens up a secondary layer of minerality reminiscent of river stones emerges. There is a light sense of earth combined with a spiciness that lends itself to a very complex mid palate.

Technical Notes
2012 May's Discovery Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

100% Cabernet from this young vineyard which sits on a hillside bench overlooking the Columbia River. The nose is perfumed, rich black raspberry and plums, graphite notes, and cedary wood.  On the palate the wine is deep, full- bodied and complex, with a fine core of fruit, ripe, chewy tannins, good acids and outstanding length and grip on the focused and youthful finish.

Technical Notes
2013 Flâneurs

A limited edition red blend from Andrew Will Winery, the 2013 Flaneurs is 50% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Franc, and 17% Cabernet Sauvignon.  It spent 21 months in 35% new French oak. It exhibits notes of cedar, cigar wrapper, red cherry, raspberry, and hints of leather.

Technical Notes
2013 Esploso

This is the both the first vintage of Esploso and the first wine created by winemaker Will Camarda. Only 165 cases were produced of this Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is composed of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from Champoux Vineyards, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon coming from Ciel du Cheval Vineyard and 10% Cabernet Franc from Two Blondes Vineyard.

Technical Notes


These new varietal wines are a pure expression of the characteristics of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot as grown in Washington State. They take us full circle to our beginnings in 1989 when we only produced single varietals. They represent a combination of tradition and renewed excitement to express their essence.

Cabernet Sauvignon
2014 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

The fruit comes from the Champoux Vineyard which has been acclaimed as the best site for Cabernet Sauvignon in Washington.  Notes of violets and licorice with a depth of flavors on the palate while fresh and lively.  Finishes with silky tannins and length.

Technical Notes
2014 Columbia Valley Cabernet Franc

100% Cabernet Franc from the Ciel du Cheval and Champoux Vineyards. This fresh, medium bodied wine with ageing capabilities is extraordinarily good. Long a fan of this varietal, winemaker Chris Camarda is recognized as one of the top producers of Cabernet Franc wines in this country.

Technical Notes
2013 Columbia Valley Merlot

This wine exemplifies what Washington State offers with this varietal. It is a wine that exhibits power and suppleness, ample tannins and complex black fruit flavors and savory notes. It has earth aromas that we love and instills in the wine a compelling complexity which is just starting to get to the surface.

Technical Notes
2014 Cuvee Lucia Sauvignon Blanc

Produced with 15% Semillon in 20% new wood, this Sauvignon Blanc wine is a white Bordeaux style blend. It is fresh and crisp with clean citrus notes of grapefruit and lime.
The fruit comes from the Sheridan Vineyard in the Yakima Valley which is adjacent to our own Two Blondes Vineyard.

Technical Notes
2014 Viognier

Our 100% Viognier comes from Antoine Creek Vineyards in the Lake Chelan region. We used stainless steel barrels in the production of  this lovely aromatic wine with its floral and honeysuckle notes. Its aromatic intensity makes for wonderful pairing with spicy foods such as Thai or Indian cuisine as well as chilled seafood.
