2014 YEWELL VINEYARD Cabernet Sauvignon
CORLEY

This wine is expressing rich aromas of rich, ripe, red berry fruit with undertones of sweet blond oak, light caramel, and mocha. On the palate, the wine is lush with a deep core of ripe fruit on the mid palate. It is wonderfully balanced through to the finish, with richness in depth of body and also in character of tannins.

Ratings
WINE SPECTATOR (James Laube): 90 POINTS A stylish effort, featuring rich, juicy dark berry, loamy earth, crushed rock and gravel notes that impart personality and muscle. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- JAMES SUCKLING RATING: 93 Points "A red with very pretty dark fruit, dark chocolate, leaf and dried flower character. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a delicious finish. Drink or hold." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- CONNOISSEURS’ GUIDE *ONE STAR (90 POINTS) Fine example of wine without notable flaws. An interesting, if different wine that stands slightly apart from most of its companions, this very rich, full-volume working from the Yewell Vineyard is a touch sweeter in tone with a close-to-succulent, ripe cherry focus that reminds of top-shelf Merlot. It is full-bodied and pleasantly supple on entry, and its tannins are relatively late to arrive, but, in the end, it has just enough of young Cabernet’s expected grip to dissuade hasty drinking and call for four or five years of waiting instead.
Vineyard Notes
Located at the northernmost end of Napa Valley, our Yewell Vineyard lies between the Mayacamas and Vaca Mountains in the St. Helena AVA. The radiating heat from the mountains warms the vineyard and creates a warmer climate resulting in fruit that is full-bodied with ripe dark fruit flavors. 2014 was another wonderful wine-growing season in Napa Valley. A true classic. A wet February gave way to a characteristically dry spring. Except for slight heat spikes in June and then again in July, the weather remained consistent throughout the growing season. The accumulation of heat during the summer led to a slightly early harvest. The sunny weather through to October allowed the grapes to develop more phenolic and flavor maturities with sugar levels remaining steady. The 2014 vintage repeated many of the blessings that came in the 2012 and 2013 vintages, from the deeply colored and velvety grape skins and brown seeds, to fully ripened grape tannins, and a wonderful natural balance of brix and acidity. Aged 26 months in 50% new French oak barrels.
Winemaker Notes
We suggest decanting for 30-60 minutes prior to serving.
