Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml


In stock


Tasting Notes:

A restrained, understated style that captures firm, dusty, cedary dark berry, herb and spice flavors, with light woody notes, this is most impressive on the lingering finish, where it gains focus. Best from 2020 through 2030. 750 cases made.

Tasting Notes:

As always, a red with balance and tension plus black currant, spice and wet bark aromas and flavors. Full body, silky tannins and a fresh finish. Drink now.

description Producer information Professional reviews

Corison Winery is a small family farm producing delicious Cabernet Sauvignons that speak of place. Over three decades, Cathy Corison and William Martin have built a special home to celebrate the best of our little corner of the world, benchland in the heart of the Napa Valley. Known for power and elegance, Corison wines are balanced to grace the table and are recognized throughout the world for their longevity and consistency.In 1987, Cathy Corison began to purchase great Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from prime benchland vineyards between Rutherford and St. Helena, intent on making powerful and elegant Cabernet Sauvignon that speaks of place. These well-drained alluvial soils had a long history of producing balanced, age-worthy, world-class wines, reaching back to the late 19th century. In her early years everything was done with smoke and mirrors, using purchased fruit and space in others' wineries.
