    April 29, 2017 - This one is ready now, although I think it could still improve a bit. I bought two bottles of this maybe 5 years ago and just decided to open the first. It's a nice complex Bordeux-style red, and satisfies in every way you would expect a fine Bordeaux to.

    March 10, 2017 - What an amazing wine, I only wish I had more than 1 bottle. Upon opening the nose was caramel, walnut, (and dare I say) cotton candy. Overtime, walnut remained while transitioning to black cherry, mushroom and forest floor. On the palate the wine presents more of the caramel, black cherry, and mushroom. The mouth feel is velvety, with well integrated tannins and a long beautiful finish. What a great wine, drink up!

    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.
