A combination of ripe red cherry and dark purple blackberries, balanced by both cinnamon bark and forest floor aromas, rise from the glass. On the palate, the entry is both broad and somewhat dense, giving juicy fresh berry flavors early on and promising much more to come for those patient enough to hold the bottle for a few years.

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon features blackberry preserves, baked red and blackcurrants and star anise notes with touches of fallen leaves, dried lavender and tapenade. Full-bodied, firm and crunchy with great depth, the palate is built like a brick house, with beautifully ripe tannins and a fragrant finish.

Celia Welsh's personal label, there are roughly 400 cases of the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, which is always from the same grapes (50% on Pritchard Hill and the rest from Rutherford and Oakville). Rocking levels of blackcurrant, unsmoked tobacco, toasted spice, chocolate, and a whiff of espresso all flow to a medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced, elegant Cabernet that has great tannins, terrific balance, and outstanding length. Give it a few years and drink over the following 20 years.

Celia Welch's 2017 Corra Cabernet Sauvignon is a dark, sumptuous, full-throttle wine that captures all of the natural intensity of the vintage. Blackberry jam, chocolate, leather, licorice, smoke and tobacco infuse the 2017 with layers of depth and textural intensity. Welch blends fruit from top sites in Oakville, Rutherford and Pritchard Hill for her Cabernet, which is one of the successes of this challenging year.
