    (45% from Pritchard Hill fruit, 45% from Rutherford and 10% from Oakville): Bright medium ruby. Superripe aromas of cassis, blackberry, bitter chocolate, anise and toasted pecan. Concentrated, broad and pliant, with blackcurrant and chocolate flavors enlivened by a sweet/tart note of cranberry. Serious, firmly structured cabernet with a real pop of fresh fruit on the back end. This is the label of Celia Welch, who also makes wine at Scarecrow and several other Napa Valley properties. The Pritchard Hill fruit gives this wine its tannic spine, she told me, while the Oakville component provides lift.

    A rich, expansive Cab, with tiers of black and blue fruit joined by currant, melted licorice, mocha and cedar flavors, yet for all its size and density, this offers the finesse and grace found in the best 2009s.

    The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is a big, rich, expansive wine. Layers of blue and black fruit, spices and flowers flow gracefully from this textured, inviting Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2009 possesses an inner glow and warmth that is immensely appealing. An elegant, finessed finish rounds things out beautifully. This is a terrific showing from Celia Welch.

    BYO at Lincoln Sq Steakhouse. Very good bottle. Perhaps a bit restrained for Corra, but beautiful fruit, nice nose and sweet tannins.

    Dark and inky. Glycerin. Deep, serious wine with black fruit, drinking well now but will age gracefully. A tad hot.

Veteran winemaker Celia Welch launched her own label in 2004, after 20 years of making premium wines for others including DR Stephens, Cornerstone, Hollywood & Vine, Keever, Husic, and of course Scarecrow. Her extensive experience in winemaking world began with a degree at UC Davis in 1982, followed by tenures at wineries in Australia, New Zealand, the East Coast and Northwest. Upon returning to California, she spent time assisting in wine production in Napa and Sonoma before becoming an independent consultant in 1995.Under the Corra label, she produces a Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley and Oakville vineyard sources, respectively. Her goal with these two small-production bottlings is to give the consumer an ultra-premium wine experience.
