15 Year Anniversary Wine - Still Rich and a bit Rambunctious!  

Our 2003 CORLEY Proprietary Red Wine is another great representative of the vintage, in which these ‘Bordeaux’ varietals are showing an amazing depth of quality in aromatics, flavors and texture. The Vintage in general, and certainly this wine, is once again tending toward early enjoyment and graceful aging!


The aromas are deep and dark, conjuring up plums, dark berry jams, cedar and pencil lead. The texture of the wine is full and rich, yet is framed with firm and straightforward tannin. The finish is lingering and the tannins fall off the back of the tongue to reveal a nice fatness of fruit. Our Vintage 2003 has intertwined characteristics of the previous three vintages. As is often the case, Cabernet Franc is the predominant varietal (55%), followed by Merlot (25%) and a good dose of Cabernet Sauvignon makes up the balance (20%).

As ever, for a true and pure 100% single vineyard bottling, this Vintage 2003 exhibits all the classic Tietjen Vineyard characteristics: the wine is fragrant with red berry fruit, red cherry, vanilla and a hint of eucalyptus; flavors of bright, red berry fruit and a slight earthiness follow; and the mouthfeel is medium in the attack, full-bodied, well balanced, beautifully textured with its classic long finish.

Continuing along my musical theme from above, this wine‟s opening stanza is a medley of blueberry, blackberry, floral and sweet oak tones. The chorus is lovely, the tannins laying down a solid rhythmic bass line, while the berry aromatics and dark fruit flavors entertain with an “echo” jam evoking some of the old-school boogie-woogie piano jams of old. The finish is sweet, lingering and smoky – like the last song of the evening in a downtown jazz club. – Chris Corley, Winemaker

Aromatics of juicy red fruits, toasty sweet oak and hints of vanilla. Flavors as expected follow similarly mostly noted is rich berry pie as the wine opens up – it’s our ‘everlasting gobstopper’ for the vintage. 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, one of the hallmarks from this long, cool vintage. This wine is drinking very well now, and should continue to develop and be enjoyed in the decade to come. – Chris Corley, Winemaker

The dark fruit and berry aromas mix beautifully with the vanilla and mocha oak
influences. I also find a nice smokiness from the toasted oak in the background;
it is a very inviting aroma. On the palate, the wine has a firm but appealing entry.
The tannins are medium in intensity and frame the rich texture beautifully. The wine
is full of dark fruit and dark chocolate flavor. With an hour or so in the glass, this
wine opens up to even more layers of fruit in both the nose and on the palate. The
finish lasts and lasts.

This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon comes from our vineyard on State Lane in Yountville. This site is planted with Clone #337 which yields tiny berries of intensely concentrated fruit and firm tannins. We’ve enjoyed using this wine over the years as both a foundation for blending and a vineyard designate offering. This is a big chewy wine, not for the faint of palate. A very dark, brooding wine with hints of Indian spices on the nose accented with creamy vanillin oak and mocha tones. The mouth-feel is rich and chewy with lots of spicy berry flavors, deep dark berry fruit and milk chocolate, coffee and cocoa flavors on the finish. This wine should be decanted for an hour prior to maximum pleasure.

This wine is showing nice red-berry and blackberry aromas with accents of eucalyptus and other nice herbal spice notes on the nose. On the palate the wine is showing an exceptional balance of rich texture, fine-grained tannins and a gentle acidity which forms a nice backbone to the vibrant fruit flavors. The wine has a gentle but lasting and well-structured finish which should fare well with a rich meal or a backyard burger.

It will drink well now, through 2022. In its youth, and likely beyond, this richly textured wine will reward the patient oenophile. Decant for 45 minutes.

This wine has a deep and vibrant magenta hue that persists to the edge of the glass. The aromas are very inviting, enticing with tones of dark berry fruits, chocolate and smoky coffee. On the palate the wine makes a bold entrance which is reaffirmed by a strong personality at its core. The mid-palate is big and the wine is nicely framed with chewy tannins that will allow this wine to age gracefully well into the next decade. The finish is long and lingering and this wine will reward the patient oenophile. Decant for 30 – 60 min.

I’m enjoying this wine now and feel that it will age well through 2025, perhaps longer.
