    September 13, 2021 - Surprisingly tannic. Deep garnet color, with deep garnet edge. Dark fruit flavors hint of a longer life. At least five years.

    April 24, 2021 - Plums and cherries with a hint of currant. Finishes a bit acidic.

    December 25, 2020 - Cork broke in half but eventually came out fine, without seepage or debris. 2-hour decant. Opaque purple with no sign of bricking. Nose features graphite, fireplace, and violets. Palate is intensely dark but not heavy: umami, blackberries, cherries, iron. Tannins are still present but are well-integrated and carry through a lengthy finish. Tons of fruit left. Very serious and well-made wine, fabulous with prime rib. Perhaps slightly better than a 2008 Cayuse Cab that it was served with, and leaps and bounds better than my previous 2008 Sorella (which had more significant cork issues). A benchmark Washington Bordeaux blend. I’m out of bottles but if you’re lucky enough to be holding these I suspect it will improve a little over the next 2-3 years and hold its peak for 5-7 more.

    November 13, 2020 - 2008 Sorella is a solid wine. Always delicious. Tannin structure was quite mellow. I suspect this is reaching its peak drinkability in the next year or two. Nose was diminished. Tastes great.

    April 1, 2020 - The cork was stuck and showed signs of cracking on top. I used the Ah-so to pull it and it actually turned out fine. The bottle was double decanted and had a fair amount of sediment. However, the wine opened up nicely and was enjoyable over tow days. Time to drink this vintage; watch the cork and decant.
