    December 27, 2016 - Great Holiday occasion to drink my last of this vintage in a Washington Brdx blind tasting. Double decanted and then tasted. Tannins were fine but pronounced. This opened like a beautiful swan over 3 hours. Would say this is the top Washington bottling for me. Mid palate mouthfeel is velvety smooth with black currant and notes from baking spice. Long finish. Lovely stuff!

    December 9, 2016 - I've held on this wine for a really long time and I finally opened it the other night. I was not disappointed. It's really drinking well right now. I have found that the bigger Washington wines, especially the cabs and Bordeaux blends, take at least six years of aging to reach their potential. I've opened too many that were just a few years old that were really closed. As the patrolman said to John McClain in Die Hard, "Smoke 'em if you got 'em." Or, in this case, drink 'em if you got 'em. This Sorella is ready to go.

    November 14, 2016 - This wine is brilliant - dark flavors, with cedar and earth on the nose. In the mouth, so much going on. Layers of fruit, earth and wood. Drank it over 2 hours and it just kept improving. Decanting 3 or 4 hours in advance of drinking would probably be a good idea.

    August 3, 2016 - 2007 Vintage: Napa Valley vs. Washington State (Lincoln Squre Steaks, Amsterdam Ave, New York City): Somehow I keep expecting more from this wine. Maybe Parker's 96 point rating sets me up for disappointment. On its own, I'm sure I would love it, but in tastings, it always seems to finish lower than it should, given its rating. WA says its "firmly structured" and I would go along with that. Maybe another year or two and it will really hit its stride?
