CORLEY | Cabernet Sauvignon | Yewell | 2017
Yewell Vineyard, St. Helena

This 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon from the Yewell Vineyard in St. Helena has vibrant midnight aromas of blackberry, cassis, hints of anise with undercurrents of toasted oak and vanilla. On the palate, the wine is rich in contrasts of robust ripe fruit and vibrant acidity. The mid-palate is full, framed by modest tannins, and a richness that lingers through to the finish.

Wine Profile & Ratings
Vineyard Notes
The year began with abundant rainfall, followed by a mild Spring. We had an extended period of flowering which resulted in great fruit set with little shatter. A labor Day weekend heatwave kicked harvest into high gear, then cool weather followed promoting full ripeness at lower sugar levels. With or 2017 wines we're finding great complexity of rich texture, deep structure and finesse.
Production Notes
The grapes from Yewell Vineyard were hand-picked then destemmed and berry sorted on the crush pad. Fermentation lasted 12 days with the wine drained and pressed at dryness. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrels. The wine was aged in French oak barrels for 26 months - 1/2 new French 1/2 neutral. The primary barrel selection was assembled at 12 months with secondary blending at 18 months and final blend strokes being done at 26 months, just prior to bottling.
