Slowly sipped over the course of three days. I don't think that I have ever had a Beaucastel this young. This was everything I would have want in a CDP. This was elegant, vibrant, floral, tannic but still smooth. I loved this wine and will seek more out to open against my 2005.

2006 Andrew Will Sorella Horse Heaven Hills Red Bordeaux Blend

Very typical of Andrew Will wines. The fruit was bright and bursting with flavors of berries and plums. Similar to the Champoux blends, and actually would have guesses Champoux due to the Cab Franc and Pertit Verdot notes that that were very prominent even though the percentage is of those varietals is much less the Champoux. Overall one of the best AW's I have had, comparable to the 2003 and 2007 Champoux.

I have one more of the 2006 Sorella so I will wait as long as I can. Fortunately, I have a bunch of other Andrew Will's that will take quite some time to drink. AW is one of my favorite American producers..

Drank at a friend's house. All I can say is WOW. Could be one of the best wines dollar for dollar out there. Nose was white pepper, tobacco (ashtray), meat. Taste was like dark fruits and velvet. Very similar to Ramey's Rodgers Creek. Would love to put this up against a Saxum and SQN blind and see how it stacks up.
