"Sorella" Champoux Vineyard Horse Heaven Hills
Sorella is a Cabernet Sauvignon based blend from the oldest block of vines (planted in 1972) at Champoux Vineyard in Horse Heaven Hills AVA. The first vintage of Sorella was 1994 and was the first blend that Chris made, which eventually led him to make blends for all his single vineyard wines. He considers this his top bottling and has no problem opening an old bottle next to a first growth Bordeaux, of which he has many in his cellar.
The 2014 Sorella is 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot, and 2% Malbec. It was aged for 18 months in about 40% new French oak. 612cs produced.
