Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Spectator | Rating: 96

Deliciously complex, rich, layered, intense and concentrated, offering a dense yet elegant mix of currant, wild berry, black cherry and plum, with touches of cedar, anise and melted chocolate. Full-bodied, focused, pure and persistent, winning points as well for its graceful texture.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

Corra's superb 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon's opaque blue/purple color is followed by subtle aromas of charcoal, white chocolate, blackberries, black currants, and background oak. Deep and full-bodied with impressive texture and purity, this 2007 is accessible now, but promises to evolve for 20+ years.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

($125; this is consulting winemaker Celia Welch's label; the fruit is from Pritchard Hill as well as vines in Rutherford and Oakville) Bright medium ruby. Very ripe, sweet aromas of dark raspberry, plum syrup, earth and spicy oak. Sweet, lush and mouthfilling, with noteworthy concentration to its plum, currant, dark chocolate and mineral flavors. Complementary cedary oak and ripe acidity give this wine plenty of sex appeal. The Oakville site is a natural acidifier, notes Welch, as the fruit ripens completely at a low pH level. Finishes broad and sweet, with slightly edgy tannins.

Bravo bravo. What an incredible bottle of wine. 2 hour decant on this classic napa cab with a bit of dust and mouth filling fruit. The tanni s are silky smooth and well integrated with a beautiful finish that makes you feel like you are on cloud nine.

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.
