Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91(+?)

Good bright medium ruby. Blackberry, cassis and licorice on the nose, plus a whiff of adhesive tape. Tightly wound but not hard, with a slightly high-toned character, subtle sweetness and strong energy to the intense black fruit and licorice flavors. Densely packed, taut wine with a long, suavely tannic finish. This will require at least five to seven years of bottle aging upon release.

Still young. Needed aeration. Plenty of potential, but needs to open up.

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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
