Never had a bad Sorella. At 16 years old, this was the oldest example I've ever tried. Forest, mushrooms, graphite all make an appearance, along with the final remnants of sweet cab fruit. Not as complex as the 1996, but everything is so well integrated and smooth, I didn't really care. Another winner for this benchmark Washington blend.

Pomegranate, celery root, orange clay, seaweed, applewood, smoke and shit in the nose. Dark cherry, pomegranate, pineapple rind, a little bell pepper on a long palate. Lots of glycerine streaking the stemware. Combines stylistic aspects of St. Julian (think old-school Lagrange and Gruaud Larouse), as well as modern Right-Bank garage wines like Chateau Gracia. Fulfills the hype.
