Her 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is medium to full-bodied, elegant, and seamless, with quintessential Cabernet notes of black fruits, tobacco, earthy, herbal nuances, and a touch of chocolate. The balance is spot on, it shows the seamless, balanced style of the vintage, and it’s a joy to drink. It will last for 20-25 years.”- Jeb Dunnuck 96 Points
“For the 2019 Corra Cabernet Sauvignon, this “season of excellent timing” provided the foundation to create a “vintage of excellent balance”. Vibrant cassis, blackberry, dark cherry and vanilla aromas combine with a touch of cocoa powder and a bit of toasty oak in the aromas. On the palate, the wine shows vibrant fruit at entry, a solid core but well-resolved tannins and crisp acidity at the finish. As with prior vintages, this Napa Cabernet was crafted from grapes grown on the steep west-facing rocky slopes in the Pritchard Hill area (east of Rutherford) as well as on the western bench lands ,of Rutherford and Oakville. Each vineyard source was vinified separately, then blended carefully after one year in oak, return to the barrels and aged for an additional 10 months. The final product is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, all from Napa Valley, matured in 100% French oak (70 % new) for 22 months.
