Vineyard and Winemaking:

The 2007 Corra Cabernet was crafted from vineyards on Pritchard Hill, in Rutherford, and in Oakville. The fruit, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, was harvested between September 4 and October 1, 2007. The fruit was entirely hand-harvested, then double-sorted prior to fermentation. The fermentations were extended to about 28 days total maceration, then gently pressed and put to barrels for about 22 months in small French barrels (90% new.) The wine was bottled in July 2009 without fining or filtration. A total of 375 cases were produced.
