Aromas of luscious red fruits, spicy oak, and a touch of vanilla. Rich black and blueberry on the palate, with excellent consistency and balance. Silky tannin and lengthy finish. We love this wine!!
With 360 years of family history as farmers from Virginia, Jay Corley and his family set out to stake a claim in the growing California wine industry in the late 60’s. They found a plot of land in the Oak Knoll district which was suitable for both warm and cool climate varietals. Today, the second generation is starting to take full stride. All three of Jay’s sons oversee the business and are proudly carrying the torch from their father’s legacy. Son Chris Corley makes the wines.
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is the most finessed of these wines from Corley. Dark cherry, plum, lavender, mint and spice are nicely layered throughout. I especially admire the wine's energy, persistence and overall definition. This is very nicely done.JS93
Lovely blackcurrant, blackberry and floral aromas follow through to a full body, round and velvety tannins and a flavorful finish."
