Jefferson Cuvée | Napa Valley | Magnum
The Corley Family has been producing Cabernet Sauvignon since 1980. We farm five vineyards in the Oak Knoll District, Yountville, Rutherford, and St Helena sub-appellations of Napa Valley. This affords us the opportunity to blend wines that embody the complexity of Napa Valley and produce Cabernet Sauvignons with wonderfully rich and complex aromas, vibrant red and dark berry fruit flavors, andfull, rich, and lingering finishes. Our experience, access to our estate grown cabernet franc and merlot, and the deft hand of winemaker, Chris Corley, yields Cabernet Sauvignons that balance fruit, tannins and oak in wines that are approachable today and worthy of cellaring for a tomorrow that is well into the future.
76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc; 14.6% Alcohol

Wine Profile & Ratings
The 2018 vintage represents another year of phenomenal quality wines from our vineyards and across Napa Valley. The near-perfect 2018 growing season started a little later than typical, saw ideal weather conditions through a mild and moderate summer. The steady and moderate growing season allowed the fruit to develop slowly and steadily, with lower sugar accumulation at ripeness and maintain a nice acidity. The wines from 2018 are displaying ripe fruit, great structure and balance.
