"Cathy Corison’s 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Corison is surprisingly deep, powerful and tannic. An exotic melange of dark cherries, plums, grilled herbs wraps around the palate. The 2009 is endowed with serious depth and tons of pure, unbridled energy. Mocha, espresso, menthol, and sweet spices all inform the warm, resonant finish. Readers will need to be patient with the 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.

These are two drop-dead gorgeous wines from Cathy Corison, one of Napa Valley’s most overlooked winemakers. Stylistically, the 2009s are a bit bigger and richer than has typically been the case here. The 2009s may surprise long-time Corison fans for their size, but wines are impeccably balanced and pure." ~ AG

" Cathy Corison produces a limited quantity of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, hand-crafted without compromise from some of the finest vineyards in the Napa Valley. They are all located along the western benchland centered around Rutherford where deep, stony alluvial soils promote the ideal growing conditions for the Cabernet vine. These vines regularly produce some of the most concentrated and superbly ripened fruit anywhere. " ~ Winery notes

These vines regularly produce some of the most concentrated and superbly ripened fruit anywhere.

Many years of winemaking for others, including Chappellet Vineyard, Staglin Family Vineyard, York Creek Vineyards and Long Meadow Ranch, honed her skills and left her eager to express her own winemaking voice. In 1987 she made the first vintage of Corison Cabernet. "There was a wine inside me that needed to be made", she says. The harvest of 2011 marked Cathy's 25th vintage of Corison Cabernet!
