Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

($125) Bright ruby-red. Blueberry, cassis, bitter chocolate, licorice and menthol on the nose. Supple and lush on the palate, with captivating cassis, mineral and melted chocolate flavors; showed a strong graphite quality with air. This boasts a compellingly creamy texture and finishes with substantial sweet tannins. A very nicely balanced 2006, built to age but already offering considerable appeal. This is consulting winemaker Celia Masyczek's own project, made from vines on Pritchard Hill as well as in Rutherford and Oakville.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 89-91

Still in barrel, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits the vintage's more muscular, masculine style along with high tannins as well as plenty of concentration and substance. Still unformed, it needs more time to sort out its big-framed personality. It should turn out to be outstanding, but whether or not it will compete with the gorgeous elegance of the beautiful 2005 remains to be seen.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

A mix of ripe, sweetish plum, currant and black cherry fruit framed by cedary oak, mineral and firm tannins, this is rich, complex and concentrated, well-proportioned and full-bodied, ending with nice structure and length.

About This Producer

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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
