Wine Profile & Ratings
Our Corley “Yewell Vineyard” shows off the tremendous intensity from this vineyard. The ‘Yewell’ is a full, rich, complete wine. Boasting a complex range of red and dark fruits, the wine also shows roasted nuts, coffee and toasty oak. This full bodied wine should age effortlessly for many years to come. The Corley family has worked very closely and collaboratively with this vineyard since 1982.
The 2009 Yewell Cabernet Sauvignon is displaying the most refined tannins of our Vineyard Designate series. This is typical of this vineyard. I find nice ample red berry aromas that are wonderfully supported by a rich layer of toasty oak. The texture of the wine is wonderful and seamless, and the deep berry fruit comes through all across the palate. The finish is rich and lingering. Drink now through 2020. Estimated Peak 2014-2018.
