VinoUS Media Review
Bright ruby-red. Multifaceted nose offers aromas of currant, black cherry, cranberry, cocoa powder, licorice and Belgian chocolate, plus hint of tarry, earthy reduction. Wonderfully plush and utterly seamless, showing more obvious early sweetness than the Cabernet Sauvignon to its fine-grained dark fruit, chocolate and nutty oak flavors. An aromatically seductive wine of outstanding energy and finesse, this beauty finishes with noble, edge-free tannins that slowly saturate the front teeth. Should be fabulous upon its release in 2018. Drink now-2029. (Stephen Tanzer)
Wine Tasting Notes
The Corliss shows dark plum, pomegranate and wild currants on the nose with underlying spice notes of chai, cedar, sagebrush, black tea and tobacco leaf. The wine is lush and concentrated upon entry with dark cassis flavors and exotic spices. Fine dusty tannins continue to build and broaden in the mouth, leading to a long, lingering finish.
