Bright medium red-ruby. Richer on the nose than the Napa Valley example, offering raspberry, chocolate, mocha and leather aromas, with good lift from floral and mineral elements. Fuller and sweeter in the middle but at the same time more perfumed, with redder fruit flavors complemented by game and leather. Almost viscous for a Corison wine but not at all alcoholic. Finishes quite long, with a serious dusting of tannins and very good lift. This will take longer to come around than the basic Napa bottling, which Corison refers to as "the Corison cabernet."

About This Producer


Winegrower Cathy Corison produces artisan Cabernet Sauvignon from great benchland vineyards between Rutherford and St. Helena in the Napa Valley. The estate vines of Kronos Vineyard, one of the oldest Cabernet vineyards in Napa, surround Corison Winery in its Victorian-style barn. Farmed organically and growing on gravelly loam soils, the gnarly old vines produce small yields and wines of uncommon concentration and refinement. They are juicy with blackberry and plum fruit, enhanced with a mineral note and violet perfume. Corison's wines are noted for their consistency and impeccable balance, powerful and elegant at the same time.
