Il Corvo Nero is bottled in honor of our dad and winery founder, Jay Corley. The watchful presence of a single black raven on the property reminds us that he continues to keep an eye on us, and the winery estate that he founded more than 50 years ago! The aromas offer strawberry, cola, and cinnamon on the nose. On the palate, the wine is very well balanced, displaying a soft, velvety texture with a vibrant beam of acidity which provides a wonderful structure for such an elegantly framed wine. I find the wine is a little darker on the palate than on the nose, offering flavors of raspberry, black cherry, and cola leading into a long, smooth finish.
