    Winemaker's Notes:

    The complex display of mineral and fruit notes puts this wine into play as one with terrific promise. This wine is a dominant expression of Cabernet Sauvignon which exhibits itself in a light made brighter by the addition of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Already it is starting to move out of its first stage into something more formed and giving. We like the persistently bright personality of this vintage of Sorella as well as its ability to cast a shadow into the future.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Andrew Wills' flagship wine is called Sorella; the 2007 Sorella, sourced entirely from the Champoux Vineyard, one of Washington's finest sites, is made up of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot. Aromas of toasty oak, espresso, Asian spices, incense, black currant, and blackberry lead to a firmly structured wine with impeccable balance and serious aging potential. This pleasure-bent offering will offer a drinking window extending from 2016 to 2032, perhaps longer.

    The Wine Advocate

    In this new vintage of Sorella, Cabernet Sauvignon is again right out front at 72% of the blend. Here the fruit seems more subdued, the wine tight, the dense tannins showing graphite and mineral more than new barrel flavors. It definitely needs decanting.

    Lithe, focused and beautifully detailed, offering a gorgeous array of floral-accented blackberry, boysenberry and anise flavors, lingering easily on the deftly balanced finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot.

    Chris Camarda includes his oldest cabernet block from Champoux Vineyard in his Sorella blend. He's teased prettiness from the grapes in 2007, the aromas almost grenache-like, with hints of red raspberries, tar and mocha. The flavors are mouthcoating and considerably more savory, with chewy tannins and a mouthwatering acidity that has the cut to handle boar ragu.

    Bright ruby-red. Cassis, black cherry and berry skin aromas are lifted by a floral note. Supple, sweet and densely packed, with savory and floral notes adding interest to the smooth dark berry flavors, and ripe, harmonious acidity giving shape and energy to the wine. Youthfully medicinal in a positive way. Finishes with big, broad tannins and flavors of dark fruits and licorice pastille that dust the entire palate. This may ultimately merit an even higher score.
