Winery Story

Cathy Corison, named 2011 Winemaker of the Year by the San Francisco Chronicle, began making wine in tha Napa Valley nearly four decades ago... (more...). Corison is a small, family-owned winery that specializes in Napa Valley benchland Cabernet Sauvingon that is both powerful and elegant, graces the table and enjoys a long, distinguished life. Visitors experience a behind the ropes tour of a "working winery". Visits include a vineyard tour and a view into production and winemaking activiites throughout the year.

Tasting Note

Supple and well-balanced, with spicy currant, black cherry and plum notes that are rich without overwhelming. Fine-grained tannins make it e... (more...)asy to enjoy now, but can be cellared through 2010.

Such a phenomenal Napa Cab. Cathy Corison really is "the best" when it comes to feminine Napa Cabs from the Valley floor. Her 2000 vintage is showing beautifully right now. No one better than Joyce & Bob to taste you through the line-up at the winery!

A smooth, delicate Napa Cab that is now approaching 10 years of age and drinking very nicely. Eucalyptus aromas dominate the nose and are accompanied by forest floor. On the palate, flavors of dark berries.

I absolutely loved this bottle. It was round and smooth and jammy. I would definitely look for this again.
