Winemaker's Notes:

Because of the even ripening during the 2000-growing year we were able to get fruit which has structure as well as a supple richness. The Sorella 2000 is made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petite Verdot. Except for the 3% Petite Verdot all the fruit comes from Champoux Vineyard. As time goes on, it becomes very clear that there is no substitute for the nearly 30-year-old vines from this vineyard. The depth and deep focus of the fruit profile along with a balanced structure are the signature marks of this vineyard. Looking back to the 1995 and 1997 vintages, we see that those vintages in WA that had even ripening are the ones that are ageing the best. The 2000's are similar to these years but with greater depth and concentration.
