Corra Winery Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, California
Aromas of cassis, dark cherry, chocolate, espresso and orange peel lift from the glass. Underneath these attributes are hints of forest floor, hazelnut, and vanilla. The entry is smooth, rich and creamy with flavors of black pepper, sweet raspberry, cassis, and baking spices. The wine is well-balanced with good intensity and concentration veiled by a silky texture. Flavors of dark chocolate and orange peel linger.
"The superb, dense ruby/purple-colored, full-bodied 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon (a 220-case lot of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon) reveals elegant notes of spring flowers, lead pencil shavings, blueberries, black currants, and a subtle hint of smoke. Noble sweet tannins are noticeable, and the wine displays a restrained use of oak (100% new French barrels were utilized), beautiful purity, a multi-dimensional texture, and a savory, long, classic finish."
The Wine Advocate
"Smooth, rich and polished, with layers of green and black olive, spice, currant, cedar and mineral flavors that are complex and deep while retaining an elegant mouthfeel. Ends with supple, graceful tannins that glide on the finish."
