  • Aromatics of juicy red fruits, toasty sweet oak and hints of vanilla. Flavors follow similarly and mostly noted is rich berry pie. This wine once again shows nice consistency and balance throughout the entire experience – from the aromatics through to the finish. The mouth-feel is rich in texture and the finish sails on framed by firm but velvety tannins.

    Wine Profile
    Production Notes
    The CORLEY RESERVE Cabernet Sauvignon is our flagship wine of this varietal each year. We take great care in sorting through the best of all of our Cabernet Sauvignon lots to select only the best barrels to use in this blend. In 2009, we selected 8 barrels that represented our best efforts in winemaking and winegrowing. It is one of my great pleasures as a winemaker when I have the opportunity to sit down and taste through all the potential CORLEY RESERVE barrels. These 8 barrels represent the pinnacle of our winemaking efforts for the vintage. State Lane Vineyard - Yountville, Napa Valley (50%) Yewell Vineyard, Ehlers Lane - St Helena, Napa Valley (25%) Tietjen Vineyard, Niebaum Lane - Rutherford, Napa Valley (25%) 28 Months in 100% New French Oak, Medium Plus Toast, Tight Grained.
    Winemaker Notes
    This is a powerful wine. It is explosive on the nose with dark berry fruit flavors, dark mocha and coffee tones, and well-integrated richly layered oak. The attack on the palate is rich as is the midpalate. I find a very full bodied wine with wonderfully balanced tannins. This CORLEY RESERVE is seamless and unforgettable with rich toasty oak flavors and a long lingering finish. Drink now through 2022. Estimated Peak 2014-2018.
