2009 CORLEY Yewell Cabernet Sauvignon

2009 CORLEY Yewell Cabernet Sauvignon
Yewell Vineyard, St. Helena LIBRARY

Yewell Vineyard St. Helena, Napa Valley
The Yewell Vineyard is a tiny property located on Ehlers Lane in the St. Helena sub-appellation of Napa Valley. The fruit from this vineyard has been coming to Monticello Vineyards since 1982, just after the vineyard was first planted. The rocky well drained vineyard produces intense small berried clusters that produce similarly intense wines. The wine from this vineyard is both a component of the Monticello “Jefferson Cuvee” Cabernet Sauvignon as well as the Corley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon.

About a decade ago, Nancy and Dave Yewell acquired this lovely St. Helena property. After farming it for a few years, an intensive replanting effort was initiated. Special planting materials, trellis design and systems were utilized to achieve the highest quality from this particular site. The Corley family has worked very closely and collaboratively with the Yewell family to create a stunning wine. While the wine continues as an important component of the “Jefferson Cuvee” and Corley Reserve, the 2006 vintage marks the first vineyard designated offering.

Vineyard Notes
Our Corley “Yewell Vineyard” shows off the tremendous intensity from this vineyard. The ‘Yewell’ is a full, rich, complete wine. Boasting a complex range of red and dark fruits, the wine also shows roasted nuts, coffee and toasty oak. This full bodied wine should age effortlessly for many years to come. The Corley family has worked very closely and collaboratively with this vineyard since 1982.
Winemaker Notes
The 2009 Yewell Cabernet Sauvignon is displaying the most refined tannins of our Vineyard Designate series. This is typical of this vineyard. I find nice ample red berry aromas that are wonderfully supported by a rich layer of toasty oak. The texture of the wine is wonderful and seamless, and the deep berry fruit comes through all across the palate. The finish is rich and lingering. Drink now through 2020. Estimated Peak 2014-2018.
