Appearance: Dark purple color. Nose: Warm blueberry/huckleberry aromas. Flavor: A dense, full, rich entry. True to the sophisticated style of Corra, the wine has the structure of a wine built to age well for decades, yet the finish shows a texture of heavy satin.

This project started in 2004. Grapes come from Celia Welch's own vineyard-50% from Pritchard Hill and 50% from Oakville/Rutherford. The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon was aged 22 months in 70% new French oak. Deep purple-black in color, it reveals vibrant notes of black cherries, black raspberries and cassis with hints of chocolate box, violets, damp soil, menthol and cumin seed plus a touch of black olives. The palate is full-bodied, firm and grainy with a solid core of muscular black fruits sparked with loads of earth and floral notes, finishing very long. 450 cases produced.
