    September 21, 2017 - The cork completely came apart into little pieces. Won't being a patron of this label again.

    August 17, 2017 - Disappointed in this bottle. It was a pop and pour scenario. The wine was starting to turn showing some oxidation and funk. The cork broke on the way out.

    March 26, 2017 - Sorella is one of my favorite wines. This bottle was no exception. The bottle was double decanted and allowed to breath. The cork was in good shape but there was quite a bit of sediment in the bottle. It was rich, well integrated, mature and Bordeaux-like. It is drinking quite nicely now (with adequate time to open up) but I think it has a few more years for those who want to hang onto their bottles. .

    December 19, 2016 - OTBN - Drycab: Typical Cabernet Sauvignon aromatics with graphite, tar & cedar. Good mouthfeel with proper acidity to balance this with food. An extremely long finish that just keeps on going on and on with dark cherry rounding out the flavors. Very excellent.
    This kicks 2005 & 2006 Bordeaux butt, likely due to the higher percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend IMO.

    November 6, 2016 - Not as good as last time. Granted, i did not decant this time. Seemed to have over-ripe fruit this time. Tart raspberries and orange peel. The earthiness and gun metal that i normally like from AW wines was gone and very little oak. Overall, the length, balance and tannins were enjoyable, but i had a hard time getting over the fruit bomb up front

    (Andrew Will Winery Sorella Horse Heaven Hills) Dark purple color. Vanilla, light pencil shavings, and soft oak interweave with dark fruit aromas. Perfectly structured and beautifully balanced.

Sampled at 63 degrees.
