Medium ruby-red. High-pitched aromas of cassis, licorice, violet and herbs, with a strong mineral component contributing to the impression of purity. A step up in density over the Napa bottling but without any sacrifice of brightness. Finishes sweet and very long, with a serious dusting of tannins and excellent breadth.

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.
