Winemaker's Notes

The 2006 vintage of Corra Cabernet offers aromas of gorgeous currant, black cherry, blackberry, chocolate and sweet toasty oak that burst out of the glass. This wine shows amazing purity of fruit, focus, balance and depth on the palate, with tiers of deeply concentrated fruit, anise, and licorice. Lush and full-bodied, this wine combines power, grace and finesse, offering a dense core of mocha-laced blackberry, wild berry and spice layered on top of silky, supple tannins. The seductive finish lingers, repeating the core flavor themes. This wine will leave you satisfied, yet wanting more.

Critical Acclaim

"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.
