Our CORLEY Proprietary Red Wine is, in a sense, a contemporary wine - a wine that while collectible for long cellaring distinguishes itself by showing opulent fruit and rich texture earlier in the wine's life. We trust that you will enjoy it from the moment that the wine is released as well as in the years to follow.
In 1990 we envisioned a rich opulent wine blended from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. We were already producing world-class Cabernet Sauvignon grown in Yountville, Rutherford and St Helena and Merlot grown on our two vineyards in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. We planted three different clones of Cabernet Franc (Clone 'X', #332 and #312) alongside our Merlot on our two Oak Knoll vineyards.
