Winemaker Notes

This wine has a full, beautiful nose with massive structure. There are mineral-like qualities in both the nose and finish, along with scents of deep, recessive fruit and licorice that deliver fully on the palate. The wine's intensity and elegance is highlighted by its rich layering of sweetness and silky tannins.

Blend: 65%, Cabernet Sauvignon 23%, Merlot 7%, Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 95
Wine Enthusiast

Sourced entirely from the Champoux Vineyard, this Bordeaux-style blend is two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon. Yummy from the first sniff to the last sip, it’s packed with juicy berries and cassis, gracefully wrapped in layers of black olive, toast, clean earth and dark chocolate. Tannins are ripe and smooth.

W&S 94
Wine & Spirits

This is a blend of two-thirds cabernet, about one-quarter merlot, the rest franc and petit verdot. It seems to fuse fruit and savory elements as if they were composed of the same material—a leather satchel, say, made from fruit skin. Savory notes of anise and leather are scented with black plum. The old-vine fruit clearly grounds the wine and gives it structure, but the tannins remain fine-grained and focused, the wine possessing a lift and energy that enlivens the palate as it extends its reach.

WS 93
Wine Spectator

Fresh and lively, this is juicy with blackberry and floral flavors that keep dancing deftly through the finish, framed with firm tannins, but staying harmonious and gaining in intensity with each sip. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

RP 92
The Wine Advocate

With slightly less Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend compared to the 2010, the 2009 Sorella checks in with 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. Very aromatic, if not a touch exotic, with floral, lavender and wild herb qualities giving way to a beautiful core of fruit, it flows onto the palate with a silky, polished texture, integrated acidity and dusty tannin that frames the finish. Still in need of another handful of years in the cellar, it will shine for 10-12 years. Drink now-2025.

California

View all wine

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.

Other White Blends

View all wine

With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
