Andrew Will Flaneurs 2013
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. On the palate, the wine shows through as a medium to full-bodied wine that shows bright acids paired with medium to medium plus tannins. It concludes with a smooth and lengthy finish on the back palate. It was a unique blend created by Chris Camarda that exhibits the high quality of fruit harvested from the 2013 vintage. The flâneur was a literary type from 19th century France, essential to any picture of the streets of Paris. The word carried a set of rich associations: the man of leisure, the idler, the urban explorer and the connoisseur of the street.
