When Rober Parker calls it “Superb” and Jeb Dunnuck calls it the “crème de la crème,” we call and get it on our shelves. This Cabernet Sauvignon dominated blend serves up crushed cassis, cherries, graphite and toasted spice in a tight fist of flavor that unfolds beautifully with a time in the glass. Balance and structure for days, this PNW darling is not to be missed.
The 2015 Sorella is superb, unwinding in the glass with a youthful but already complex bouquet of crushed cassis, cherries, pencil shavings, subtle cigar smoke and espresso roast. On the palate, it's full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with a rock-solid core, juicy acids and a beautifully fine-grained but firm chassis of structuring tannins. If it's the most promising of these 2015s from Chris Camarda, it's also the most backward and in need of cellaring, and as the track record of this bottling demonstrates, its tenth birthday will be just the beginning of the excitement.
