“'Crème de la Crème' from the Pacific Northwest”

Columbia Valley Is Giving Bordeaux's Best A Run For Its Money!

By David Gettenberg

"The 2015 Sorella is superb."  Wine Advocate

Andrew Will, Quilceda Creek, and Woodward Canyon.  What do these Columbia Valley powerhouses have in common?

Champoux Vineyard.

Producing the finest fruit in Washington State, the Champoux Vineyard is owned and run by a consortium of partners: Andrew Will, Quilceda Creek, and Woodward Canyon.  

"Block 1," the oldest section, is reserved exclusively for Andrew Will's "Sorella."

"Cabernet Sauvignon dominated blend that’s up with the crème de la crème of the vintage. Cassis, black raspberries, toasted spice, candle wax and graphite notes all emerge from this tight, concentrated, fresh beauty that really needs 4-5 years of bottle age. A wine that gains depth with time in the glass, it has fine tannin, beautiful balance, and a classic, elegant style."  Jeb Dunnuck

Sorella is a classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (85%), Merlot (6%), Cabernet Franc (3%) and Petit Verdot (3%) and has a striking resemblance to Bordeaux's finest left bank reds.

And, there is a reason Bordeaux varietals thrive in the Columbia Valley of Washington; the terroir is quite similar to that of Bordeaux - even down to the latitude!  

Sharpen your steak knives and decant for an hour.  

Enjoy now and over the next decade.

Wow!

Press & Tasting Notes

“The 2015 Sorella is superb.”

Wine Advocate • 98 / 100

"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."
