Andrew Will Cellars 2009 Sorella, Horse Heaven Hills
Here is owner/winemaker Chris Camarda’s best wine.
Using estate grapes from Champoux Vineyards that average 33 years in age, it is a blend heavy on Cabernet Sauvignon (65%), along with Merlot (23%), Cabernet Franc (7%) and Petit Verdot. It offers aromas of dark plums, blueberries, chalkboard dust, cedar, toast and wild roses, followed by flavors of plums, pomegranates, huckleberries and black tea. It’s a complex wine with tannins that build to a crescendo of flavors and a memorable finish.
This delivers the goods now, but it has the potential to age for a decade or more.
