Community Tasting Note

  • TXRDW Likes this wine: 96 points

    August 4, 2017 - Slow ox for about 3 hours, then consumed over 90 minutes at dinner. Very approachable this early, much more so than a 2012 Corra from about 6 months ago. Soft tannins, balanced, long finish especially towards the final glass. Ripe fruit, earth notes and complex aromas. What really stood out was the softness of the wine and a most unique mouth feel. I will be looking forward to Celia's February release of her 2015 cab.

    11/14/17, 6:23 AM - Thanks. The Parker score does surprise me, which is one of the reasons I place more validity on CT scores. I do think the few Corra wines I’ve tasted benefit from substantial air time. I’m really looking forward to her 2015 release.

    11/14/17, 10:43 AM - I hear you. I tend to agree with Parker more often than not but Corra probably doesn't fall in that big/bold cab profile that he prefers. More of an elegant profile but I love the purity and flavors of Celia's wines. One of my favorite wines was the 2009 Corra cab which he only gave 93+. Oh well, as long as we enjoy it. Take care.
