2015 STATE LANE VINEYARD Cabernet Sauvignon Image

2015 STATE LANE VINEYARD Cabernet Sauvignon
CORLEY

In 1982, we began purchasing cabernet sauvignon from this vineyard on State Lane in Yountville and we have referred to it as ‘State Lane Vineyard’ on some of our earliest cabernet sauvignon wines.  The vineyard quickly became the main source of Cabernet Sauvignon for our CORLEY RESERVE Cabernet Sauvignon and in 1989 we had the good fortune to be able to acquire the vineyard.

The cabernet sauvignon vines farmed in the 1980’s were originally planted in 1971. Due to phylloxera we replanted the vineyard in the 1990’s. The 12+ acre site is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon clone #337. We are pleased to have this crown jewell vineyard!

Wine Profile & Ratings
Tasting Notes
This wine is offering wonderful aromas of dark blackberry, cassis, hints of vanilla, and undertones of sweet caramel from the barrels. On the palate, the wine is bold upon entry, with characteristically robust tannins on the edges of the palate. The mid-palate is full, providing depth and a strong foundation. The finish is long and lingering, and with a slight grip, as is typical for this vineyard.
Vineyard Notes
Our State Lane Vineyard produces fruit that is deep, dark, and bold. Located in the Yountville AVA, the cooler climate allows for a longer growing season which contributes to the Cabernet grapes slow, even ripening.
Production Notes
As of the time of this writing, the 2015 vintage represents the fourth of five consecutive years of phenomenal quality wines from our vineyards and across Napa Valley. 2015 remained a relatively dry growing season, and the crop yields across our different vineyards was generally lower than normal. The fruit displayed great purity and intensity, which was translated quite well through to the finished wines. The growing season was relatively consistent, with no major heat spikes. In general, the wines from 2015 are displaying ripe fruit, great structure and balance. This single vineyard wine was vinified from certified organic grapes from our State Lane Vineyard in Yountville.
Winemaker Notes
We suggest decanting 30-60 min prior to serving.
Production
We produced 18 barrels.
