About This Wine:
Their mantra has long been “elegance in a glass,” and it certainly applies to the 2016 Corley Family Cabernet Sauvignon from the Tietjen Vineyard. The vineyard is located in the renowned Rutherford Bench area of the Napa Valley, on the gentle slopes of the Mayacamas Mountain range.
It’s a seven-acre vineyard farmed by long-time family friend Hugh Tietjen, who gives each vine the attention it deserves, including frequent pruning and, when the time is just right at harvest time, picking by hand. This approach results in low grape yields, but tremendous quality.
The fruit is an important component of the Corley Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, but the family also likes to offer a single-vineyard bottling — six barrels, in total. No wonder it’s so coveted by fans of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon — and the beautifully balanced 2016 vintage is no exception.
