The Sorella 2012 blend is two-thirds cabernet sauvignon, the vines close to 40 years old; the balance is merlot and cabernet franc. The flavors are dense and dark, vibrant cassis and black plum dusted with a fine powdered mineral glaze, the cabernet as much a feeling as a flavor. Everything is guided by a firm textural line, lean, refined, as elegant as a tailored suit, the finish firm and nimble at once. It’s cabernet at its most effortless. (996 cases)

Continuing to drink brilliantly, the 2012 Sorella is up with the creme de la creme of the vintage. Its deep ruby color is followed by a full-bodied, rich and layered 2012 that boasts fabulous notes of creme de cassis, lead pencil shavings, graphite, mineral and toasted bread. Like all of Chris's 2012s, it's still a baby, yet its impeccable balance and purity allow it to dish out tons of pleasure, even today. Nevertheless, it needs 3-5 years of cellaring and will have 25-30 years of overall longevity. - Jeb Dunnuck

Superripe aromas of blackberry, cassis, mocha, coffee and molten bitter chocolate, complemented by nutty oak tones. Plush, dense and fine-grained, offer outstanding concentration and a lightly saline character to the flavors of dark berries, mocha and coffee. Nicely vinous for all its ripeness even if it doesn’t show quite the lift or grip of the Champoux Vineyard blend. The big, tongue-dusting tannins arrive late, allowing the fruit to glisten on the long finish. This has plenty of structure to support a graceful evolution in bottle.

Black as night from the core straight to the rim. Powerful aromas of blackberry and black currant nicely mix with lively notes of cedar and mint on an inviting nose. Concentrated, compact and full-bodied on the palate... Black as night from the core straight to the rim. Powerful aromas of blackberry and black currant nicely mix with lively notes of cedar and mint on an inviting nose. Concentrated, compact and full-bodied on the palate, there is a ton of complexity and layers here, though they are just beginning to reveal themselves, as the tannins are still tightly wound. There is excellent length and a beautiful core of acidity that offsets the dark fruit and keeps the wine lively and focused. Just beginning to drink well now, this will nonetheless improve with time in the cellar, and should impress for another 2-3 decades.
