    Winemaker's Notes:

    This is the tenth Sorella vintage. The Block I Cabernet Sauvingnon vines from the Champoux vineyard are now 35 years old. This fruit makes up 37% of the Sorella and provides the backbone to this wine, which is an Andrew Will favorite. As in previous years, Andrew Will chose to use 33% new French oak.

    Critical Acclaim:

    An expressive red that's bright, open-textured and juicy, with blueberry, tar and currant flavors, lingering on the fine-grained finish. Needs time to shed the tannins, but the flavors come through well and persist impressively. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.

    Wine Spectator

    The 2004 Sorella is sourced from the Champoux Vineyard and is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot,18% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Petit Verdot. It was aged for 21 months in 70% new French oak. Dark ruby-colored, it presents a fragrant perfume of pain grille, scorched earth, sweet spices, clove, mint, cassis, and black currants. This leads to a medium-bodied, velvety-textured, seamless, full-flavored wine with excellent balance and enough structure to evolve...

    The Wine Advocate

    Sorella blends cabernet, merlot, cabernet franc and petit verdot from fruit that includes the oldest blocks on Champoux, some more than 35 years old. Perhaps it's the older vines of merlot and cabernet franc that give this wine its savory, dark-herb quality, as if the glass had been rubbed in sage and filled with a blackberry and plum compote. The wine is marvelously firm and tightly constructed, and it will last a decade at least.
