"In spite of a lightness to the palate weight, this is no doubt a serious wine. It's complex and integrated, with intriguing aspects of leather, earth and truffle. Soft and supple, it shows flavors of clove, tart red raspberry and cassis, and is deliciously memorable in every way. Enjoy 20262036. VIRGINIE BOONE"

"Fresh in feel, with red currant, raspberry and damson plum fruit, laced with floral hints and backed by a subtle mineral edge on the finish. Offers a pure, streamlined character. Well done. Drink now through 2033. 2,200 cases made. JM"

"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is bold, luscious and gracious, all in the mid-weight style that is such a signature of Cathy Corison's Cabernets. Floral overtones add freshness to this super-expressive Cabernet Sauvignon. Rose petal, lavender, licorice, mint and dark cherry fruit get an extra kick of vibrancy from the natural brightness of the year. What a gorgeous wine this is. -- Antonio Galloni"

The Wine
2016 at Corison was a near-perfect vintage. The weather was ideal for flowering in the spring, which resulted in a plentiful crop, followed by an unseasonably cool summer. The nighttime temperatures were correspondingly chilly, giving the wine a firm structure on which to hang the complex flavors.

The Estate
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.

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 Cathys 25th vintage of Corison Cabernet!
