Andrew Will Sorella 2018

Size: 750ml

Wine Advocate: 96, Jeb Dunnuck: 97

"The Sorella is a blend that was created in 1994 and has now become the flagship wine for Andrew Will. It is a Cabernet Sauvignon dominant red blend was created to showcase the combination of finesse and structure that comes from Washington State grapes. This wine is sourced from Champoux Vineyard, which is one of the premier vineyards in Washington. This wine has proven to age gracefully for over 25 years now. Sorella means 'sister' in Italian and the wine was named to honor Chris Camarda’s late sister when it was first produced in 1994." —winemaker

"The flagship from this great estate is the 2018 Sorella, a Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated blend (8% each of Cabernet Franc and Merlot and the 4% Petit Verdot) that spent the same 22 months in 35% new French oak. Gorgeous crème de cassis, tobacco leaf, lead pencil, and chocolate define the bouquet, and it's medium to full-bodied, flawlessly balanced, and has a great, great finish. A classically styled, structured, age-worthy beauty, it will benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and have 2-3 decades of overall longevity. Trust me, this will pass undetected in a blind lineup of top Bordeaux." —Jeb Dunnuck

"Set to be released in spring of 2023, the 2018 Sorella is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% each of Merlot and Cabernet Franc with Petit Verdot filling in the remainder. Juicy, dusty and spicy aromas waft from the glass with succulent, floral notes that capture the nose. Spiced red cherries, potpourri and dusty black raspberry essences cartwheel with notions of lavender and rose hip before offering up delicate baking spices. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is initially subdued and grows in amplitude while offering a balanced structure with succulent tannins. The longer the wine sits on the palate, it increases in spiciness under the ripe, juicy dark red fruit tones. The Sorella continues to evolve in the mouth with persistence, lingering long, leaving behind flavors graphite, crème de cassis and black cherry skin. Just under 8,000 bottles were filled after the wine rested for 22 months in all French oak, 35% new. Set your calendar and put this on your shopping list for when it’s released. Bravo, another stunning vintage of Sorella on the books." —Wine Advocate

Peter Michael Au Paradis Cabernet Sauvignon 2020 Size: 750ml

"The ruby red 2020 Au Paradis exhibits a complex floral and fruity nose of black currant, cassis, violets, black plum, and red raspberry. The wine showcases great structure with mouth-coating, velvety tannins in the late midpalate that resolve in a long, lingering finish. Black tea and dark chocolate accent this full-bodied, intense, well-structured edition of Au Paradis." —winemaker
