Our 2011 Corley Proprietary Red Wine displays a deep ruby red color. The aromas are
fragrant, with dark berry fruit intertwined with light vanilla tones and lightly toasted oak
in the background. On the palate, the wine is very smooth with a great core of fruit. I
find the tannins moderate and the mid-palate is medium weight. The flavors are red
berry and smoky with a nice lingering tone in the finish. This wine opens up wonderfully
after being in the glass or decanter for an hour so. It rewards patient, thoughtful consumption.
Drink Now through 2024.

✩✩✩✩(4 Stars) The Corley Family made impressive Cabernets and blends in 2011. The 2011 Proprietary Red is a complex, stylish blend that is full bodied, supple, and intensely flavored (cherry, black currant, toast, spicy oak, caramel); a wine with good balance, moderate richness, and a very long finish. Excellent. Ronn Wiegand, Restaurant Wine, Fall 2015
