Ruby-red. Cassis, dark raspberry, licorice and bitter chocolate aromas are lifted by a note of violet. Nicely rich and creamy for the year, with enticing rocky pungency to the flavors of cassis, blueberry, graphite, bitter chocolate and wild herbs; spices and violet emerge as the wine opens in the glass. Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins and very good length. Very cabernet, and a very successful wine from this cool year.

Celia Welch's own wines include the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, which is one of the finest efforts in this complicated vintage. A multi-appellation blend, it exhibits a dark ruby/purple color along with sweet notes of espresso roast, Asian plum sauce, black currants and hints of bay leaf and toast. Medium-bodied with silky tannins, despite being 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, and an elegant, supple style, it should drink nicely for a decade.

A little green - more wood than bell pepper. One of the better 2011s, but sub-par for a Corra.
