(90 - 92) As for the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Corley Yewell Vineyard, this is from a site in St. Helena, and like the State Lane and Tietjen vineyards is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and will see a full 30 months of barrel aging. It shows sweet cassis fruit, plenty of toasty oak, a big full-bodied mouthfeel and lots of texture. I didn't like it as much as the Tietjen Vineyard or State Lane Vineyard, but it's impressive. Drink 2018-2030+.
