Andrew Will is one of Washington States finest wineries. We highly recommend the Sorella Proprietary Red, one of the best Bordeaux Blends in Washington and top-scoring wine of the vintage.

99 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "Flirting with perfection
, the Andrew Will 2016 Sorella checks in as 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% each of Cabernet Franc and Merlot, and the balance Petit Verdot. Coming all from the Champoux Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills, its saturated purple color is followed by a La Mission Haut Brion-like bouquet of black and blue fruits, gravelly, minerality, smoke tobacco, and chocolate. Deep, multi-dimensional, full-bodied, and with beautiful complexity, it’s a magical wine as well as the finest wine from this estate to date. Bravo!...Readers looking for classic, age-worthy Bordeaux blends that will stand up with the best out there need to give the wines of Andrew Will a serious look. These are classic, balanced wines that deserve more attention in the market."

96+ Points Robert Parker: "The Andrew Will 2016 Sorella is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot. The plump, juicy nose exudes aromas of luxurious, elegant fruit characteristics of ripe blackberry and dark plum along with a layered core of oak and a structured floral bouquet. Exciting and thought-provoking on the full-bodied palate, fruit and oak spices radiate with the precision and focus of world-class wine, building to a plushier, fruit-forward expression on the mid-palate yet showing a mineral focus. The finish is long and winding, with layers that continue to evolve in the mouth, unfolding to a generous and intricate lingering expression. Only 472 cases were made, and it will be your lucky day if you can add some of this stellar wine to your cellar. Bravo!"

Robert Parker:  "Readers looking for classic, age-worthy Washington state Bordeaux blends need look no further than this terrific estate. As always, they release a few appellation blends (Esploso and Sorella) and numerous single vineyard wines (Champoux, Ciel du Cheval, Mays’ and Two Blondes). The wines show singular characters and have broad drink windows."
