2017 Corliss Red Wine

Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc

“Full ruby-red. Aromas of cassis, black cherry, blueberry, sandalwood and mocha. Silky, large scaled, plush and horizontal, offering a lovely amalgamation of fruit, sweet oak, minerals and medicinal menthol reserve. This wonderfully dense, seamless, mouth filling wine is balanced and sweet from the start. Finishes with broad, ripe, palate-and-tooth-saturating tannings and no rough edges. A bit more pilant and less vibrant than the ’16 at the same stage, this wine will give earlier pleasure but has the energy, stuffing and structure to evolve gracefully. Reminded me of a Saint-Julien. “

Steve Tanzer, Vinous 94pts

“The 2017 Red Wine is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon yet has 28% Cabernet Franc, all of which spent 22 months in 65% new French oak. Deep purple/plum, with a killer nose of blackcurrants, cassis, tobacco, and lead pencil, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a light, elegant texture, lots of chalky minerality, and a great finish. It shows the slightly more streamlined, narrow style of the 2017 vintage yet is just beautifully balanced and has the class to benefit from short-term cellaring and evolve for upwards of two decades.”
