Corra Winery Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, California
The 2007 Corra Cabernet Sauvignon displays provocative aromas of spiced raspberry and ripe blackberry, sweet tea, vanilla, cinnamon and sage notes, intermixed with a touch of cocoa/mocha adding depth to the gloriously sweet fruit. On the palate, this multi-dimensional wine offers a full, luscious entry with impressive concentration, displaying all the ripe blackberry and cherry intensity that is characteristic of the 2007 vintage. The mid-palate is full, rich, and opulent, supported by a harmonious tannin profile that is structural as well as silky. The juicy fruit flavors are pure and vibrant, with dark cherry notes that linger on the seductive finish.
"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. "
The Wine Advocate
"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 for its graceful texture."
"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."
