While the aromas display the typical raspberry, cherry jam, and vanilla notes that the combination of benchland and hillside vineyards consistently offer, in this gentler season there is also a stronger note of savory thyme, forest floor, and a hint of anise seed. The warmth of the berry fruits and the savory notes of the spice and earth elements combine to create a sense of completeness throughout the palate impression. On the finish, the sweetness of juicy raspberries lingers gracefully as the silky tannins slowly fade.

"Corra's 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon captures both the essence of the house style and the vintage. Tobacco, savory herbs, leather and dark fruit all inform a textured, inviting Cabernet Sauvignon loaded with class. The 2011 will drink well on release and for at least another handful of years beyond. The aromatics are savory and floral, but the expression of fruit is pure Corra and pure Celia Welch."
