CORLEY | Cabernet Sauvignon | State Lane | 2017
State Lane Vineyard, Yountville

We are pleased to have this crown jewel vineyard!
(and it is now farmed organically - certified)

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.

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.
CONNOISSEURS’ GUIDE *90 points WINE SPECTATOR 93 points Grippy and tight, with a hefty dose of charcoal-tinged toast framing the core of steeped black currant and fig fruit flavors. Offers lots of tar and bramble accents through the finish, while the fruit and toast keep pace with each other. Muscular wine. Best from 2021 through 2032.—J.M.

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
At the time of this writing, the 2016 vintage represents the fourth year in a phenomenal run of vintages from 2012-2018 for our vineyards and across Napa Valley. The fruit displayed great purity and intensity, which translated quite well through to the finished wines. 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.
We produced 18 barrels.
