The Sorella is an attractive balance of rich tannins, bright acids, and flavors. On the nose hints of limestone, anise, lavender, blueberries and violet are accompanied by generous and deep fruit qualities. The mid palate is possessed of textured tannins in harmony with a complex depth. The wine has a laser-like focus and shows elegant restraint from both start to finish. The bold sophistication of Champoux fruit is fulfilled by the complexities of the wine.
Sorella means sister in Italian and the wine was made to honor Chris' sister when it was first produced in 1994. The portrait on the label is now Chris' late wife Annie who died in 2005.
