Juicy flavors lean more toward the purple and black end of the the Cabernet spectrum with cassis, black plums and marionberries dominating. With time in the glass, Bing cherries and blueberries emerge for a symphony of flavor. A pretty violet and dried rose perfume is beginning to develop, and savory spice notes and lifting mineratlity round out this epic Napa legend. Stuning whne young but only gets better with time

Cathy Corison discovered her passion for wine while studying biology in Claremont, CA. She went on to get a masters in enology at UC Davis in the mid-1970s then, after stints at leading estates (like Chappellet), founded her eponymous estate. She produced her first vintage in 1987 and has been making her Cabernet the same way ever since, walking the fine line between elegance and power.

The vineyards are some of Napa's best Cabernet sites, located between Rutherford and St. Helena, with deep stony and alluvial soils that produce a sublimely concentrated and elegant Cabernet Sauvignon. Exercising minimal intervention in the cellar, Cathy explains her winemaking technique as: “a hands-off approach to winemaking; it is my job to let the vineyards speak.”

Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 92
"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." -Vinous

Jancis Robinson

JR 17
"Medium-deep ruby colour. Vibrant aromas of red and black cherries, fresh blackcurrant and savoury spices. Very enticing. Great purity on the palate, with weightless intensity of dark fruit and harmonious acidity. The tannins are soft and very refined, gently framing the fruit. Cool and well-proportioned, this is very moreish and has more than a hint of the Old World about it."

Wine Spectator

WS 93
"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."

Wine Enthusiast

WE 95
"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."
