Issue Issue 144

($125) Bright ruby-red. Blueberry, cassis, bitter chocolate, licorice and menthol on the nose. Supple and lush on the palate, with captivating cassis, mineral and melted chocolate flavors; showed a strong graphite quality with air. This boasts a compellingly creamy texture and finishes with substantial sweet tannins. A very nicely balanced 2006, built to age but already offering considerable appeal. This is consulting winemaker Celia Masyczek's own project, made from vines on Pritchard Hill as well as in Rutherford and Oakville.

Issue 180

Still in barrel, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits the vintage's more muscular, masculine style along with high tannins as well as plenty of concentration and substance. Still unformed, it needs more time to sort out its big-framed personality. It should turn out to be outstanding, but whether or not it will compete with the gorgeous elegance of the beautiful 2005 remains to be seen.

A mix of ripe, sweetish plum, currant and black cherry fruit framed by cedary oak, mineral and firm tannins, this is rich, complex and concentrated, well-proportioned and full-bodied, ending with nice structure and length.

14.5% alcohol Knowing Celia's record, after I wrote the first review on the 2004 premiere release of Corra, (DW 97), I was not surprised how excellent the wine was. Since then, many devoted Cabernet fans have jumped on her mailing list and it sells out within a week. I tasted this wine with Celia in Pasadena at the same time as the 2006 Scarecrow, and found the Corra was a bit more evolved at that point. Aroma: dense, dark black fruits, cherry and crisp raspberry, graphite and dark chocolate Palate: lush, creamy and full-bodied entry, with excellent balance throughout, finishing with delicate black raspberry, cranberry and currant Impression: another stunner. Beautiful if you want to enjoy now for its elegance, will continue to gain weight for years to come.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
