2016 Corliss Red Wine

Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot

“Saturated bright ruby. Aromas of blackcurrant, blueberry and sexy oak are accented by hints of tobacco leaf, herbs and pepper. Then backward and a bit sinewy but already impressively fine-grained and layered on the palate, with plum, dark berry and licorice flavors showing surprising fullness and a sexy early sweetness. Still, this comes across as cooler and more classic than the 2015 version, and it appears to possess the tannic spine for extended aging. Finishes with excellent mounting length. About 20% of this wine was fermented in concrete, the rest in upright oak tanks. This wine features a higher percentage of Cabernet Franc than past vintages. “

Steve Tanzer, Vinous 94pts

“Deep purple-colored, with rocking notes of crème de cassis, crushed flowers, incense, vanilla bean, and chocolate, the full-bodied 2016 Red Wine has a rounded, opulent texture, sweet tannins, and a great finish. Based on Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, aged 28 months in 65% new French oak, this powerful, super-rich, beautifully balanced blend is going to deliver the goods for at least 10-15 years.”
