Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 90

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.

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.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 89

Pleasantly rich and earthy, with dark berry, graphite, black licorice and dusty, cedary notes. This is more complete than most 2011s, but the austerity of the fruit is consistent with the vintage.

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

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.
