  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 89

    An opaque ruby/purple color and a muted nose are followed by a harmonious blend of fruit, acidity, body, tannin, and alcohol. There is fine length and purity, as well as medium to full body. Although undoubtedly excellent, the wine is closed, monolithic, and unyielding. It has 10-15 years of potential ageability.

    Savoury, lively nose. Still some quite chunky oak. This big wine could do with a bit of lift.

    Young and tight, a bit closed, but enough plum and blackberry flavors peek through to show promise. Lacks the depth and concentration of the best '94s. 3,000 cases made.

    Good Cab. Straightforward cherry and cedar. Not terribly complex. On its way down but still enjoyable.

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.
