2014 CORLEY Proprietary Red Wine
CORLEY

This CORLEY Proprietary Red Wine represents the the art of blending together the depth and richness of Cabernet Sauvignon (38%) with the structure and spice of Cabernet Franc (32%) and the smooth elegance of Merlot (30%).

This wine displays expressive aromas of dark black and blue berries, cassis, mocha and hints of sweet toasted vanilla oak and spice tones. On the palate the wine is richly textured, wonderfully balanced from front to back with dark ripe flavors, full body, and robust tannins. The full finish goes on and on.

Ratings
WINE ENTHUSIAST: 90 Points (Publishing Dec 2018) 90 Corley 2014 Proprietary Red Wine (Napa Valley). This blend is nearly a third each of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, with a deep, dark oak profile and plenty of firm, chalky tannins. The flavors lean toward licorice and cherry, with a bit of coffee and toffee richness. —V.B. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- JAMES SUCKLING RATING: 92 Points "A fine and focused red with berry and chocolate character. Medium to full body, polished tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- RESTAURANT WINE - **** Four STARS+ “Corley’s 2014 Cabernets (and blends) are very impressive wines, and among its best ever. The 2014 Propriety Red blend is wonderful: very full bodied and supple, it is a rich, complex wine with excellent balance and length. It is moderately tannic on the finish, and tastes of black currant, plum, rosehips, red licorice, cedar, and spicy oak. Warrants further aging. From estate vineyards in the Oak Knoll District.” JEB DUNNICK (Formally of Wine Advocate) “The 2014 Proprietary Red Wine checks in as a blend of close to equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc brought up in 505 French oak. It offers a perfumed complex style in its currants, raspberry, saddle leather and Provencal herb aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, elegant, and silky on the palate, with loads of charm, it’s best drunk over the coming 7-8 years.”

Vineyard Notes
We are very excited about the 2014 vintage. As of the time of this writing, the 2014 vintage represents three of four consecutive years of phenomenal quality wines from our vineyards and across Napa Valley. It was one of the driest years on record, but the little rain that we had was well-timed, and the vines were thankful and happy. For our vineyards, the vintage was considered ‘normal’ in terms of timing. The growing season was relatively consistent, with no major heat spikes. In general, the wines from 2014 are displaying ripe fruit, great structure and balance.
