Martha McClellan and Wesley Steffens worked in tandem to craft this inaugural release. The fruit is sourced from two estate vineyards farmed on top of Spring Mountain, as well as the Beckstoffer Melrose Vineyard in Rutherford, CA. The resulting wine shows very focused yet fresh and vibrant aromatics, polished tannins with great tension, smooth texture throughout the wine ending with a very pleasing and lengthy finish. This wine will drink very well upon release, as well will continue to reward with aging in the cellar for many years to come. 

The wines from Correlation Wine Company are first and foremost reflections of our passion, our experience, and ultimately founded upon the relationships we’ve made since our family first arrived in the Napa Valley in 1999. We strive to craft wines with impeccable quality and approachability, showcasing new expressions outside of our Steffens Family estate on Spring Mountain. These “Correlations” are the backbone of our wines.

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate | 94 (Dec 2016)
His 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot. This is a 1,100-case cuvee showing loads of blueberry and blackcurrant fruit, licorice, charcoal embers and baking spices. It is dense, full-bodied, ripe and much in the style of 2014 with its lusciousness and elegant precociousness. Drink it over the next 15 or so years.
