Excellent wine. Still very juicy and fruity. Toasted notes, coffee, overripe forest fruits, cherries notes after an hour in the glass. Very complex. — 20 days ago
I’m excited about this acclaimed Washington State Bordeaux blend from Andrew Will, named after the founder’s (Chris Camarda’s) nephew, Andrew, and son, Will (now winemaker).
Sorella is a single vineyard wine coming from the Champoux Vineyard, just five miles from the Columbia River, in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA of Columbia Valley, Washington. This particular wine was named Sorella – meaning sister in Italian – a tribute to the winemaker’s late sister when it was first produced in 1994.
It is comprised of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot.
This is a deep ruby wine.
On the nose it has medium(+) intensity of developing aromas. Aromas include baked blackberry, cassis, black cherry, also potpourri, licorice, green bell pepper, chervil, anise, black licorice, black pepper, clove, leather, earth, and sweet tobacco.
On the palate, this wine is dry. It has medium acidity, a medium(+) body, medium alcohol, medium(+) tannins, and medium intensity of flavors consistent with the nose. This wine has a medium(+) finish.

This one is not expensive so might fool you into believing it’s a lesser wine. This one holds nice ripe blackberries, a hint of spice, nice nose, mouthfeel and finish...under $20 🤗 — 2 months ago
This merlot is silky and earthy, and includes delicious spices. A hint of strawberry peaks through as well, giving this wine a nice finish. — 16 days ago
Thanks Goaley, great as always... Washington Merlots are very good — 22 days ago
Nice silky tannins, inky, Bordeaux like beauty from Washington state. Great value! A lot of mid palate, graphite/minerals, followed by a long finish. Still quite young, good for many years. Opened in June 2021. — 7 days ago
