About This Wine:
Fifty years later, Chris Corley is carrying on the family’s winemaking tradition, crafting various blends and single-variety wines from grapes grown in some of the California North Coast’s most acclaimed vineyards.
One such site is the Yewell Vineyard in the St. Helena area of Napa Valley. This vineyard shows off the tremendous intensity of Cabernet Sauvignon, which Corley then crafts into a balanced, elegant and beguiling wine. The Corley family has worked closely and collaboratively with the Yewell family to make this stunning cuvee a reality.
“Our goal with this wine is to present as pure an expression as possible from the vineyard,” Chris Corley tells us. “The richness of the texture is very appealing, and the finish is smooth, lingering and mouthwatering.” Only 237 cases of this filet mignon-worthy Cabernet were produced.
