U.S.A. > California > Napa Valley
Cathy Corison is undoubtedly one of the most influential winemakers in Napa Valley. With a hands-off approach to winemaking, she lets the wine do all the talking. This winery holds a well-deserved reputation for producing some of the best cabernet sauvignons that represent the heart of the iconic Napa Valley. This bottle is in magnum format. 

96/100 - Medium to full-bodied, beautiful and restrained, with savoury aromatics of fennel, black liquorice, cedar, and black currants. Soft, satiny blackberry fruits are lifted by fine-grained yet supple tannins while a purity of fruit guides the palate to a long, tobacco-tinged finish marked by a mineral-freshness that beckons sip after sip - Jonathan Cristaldi, Decanter
90/100 - Heady, potent wine that shows the heat of the year in its forward, opulent personality. Super-ripe black cherry, plum, chocolate, herbs, earthiness, and liquorice are all amplified in this decidedly exuberant, potent wine. There's not a lot of subtlety, and plenty of impact. Even so, this opens nicely with aeration. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous
18++/20 - Dark garnet. Smells of black cherry and cassis. Gorgeous cherry, dried flowers, and herb flavors have an ethereal quality as bright acidity makes for a mouth-watering package. The tannins are wispy ghosts that hang in the corners of the mouth. Utterly refined. the idea of a wine this gorgeous being made in a year when a large percentage of producers in Napa made no wine at all thanks to the fires positively boggles the mind. - Alder Yarrow, Jancis Robinson
91/100 - Gentle herbal steaks run through the wine's classic black cherries and cassis fruit. Medium-bodied, sleek and streamlines, it shows vibrant energy and ample length, framed by gentle, silky tannins. - Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate
95/100 - Classic balance and a little restraint characterize this firmly structured, deeply flavored wine that brings black cherries, cranberries, and black pepper to the front, backed by slightly tangy acidity and texturizing tannins that will help it mature nicely. - Jim Gordon, Wine Enthusiast
92/100 - Quite fruit-expressive and floral, with spiced dark cherries, rust, baked plums, hibiscus, and violet extract on the nose. Rich and fruity, with tart cherries, cassis, and dried herbs on the palate. Full-bodied and juicy, with silky tannins that smoothen it out. Drink or hold. - James Suckling


TASTING PROFILE
Bright black cherry and cassis on the nose; subtle notes of cedar and herbs; the palate brings forward juicy blackberry and dark plum flavours; ending with a hint of spice, cocoa, and tobacco.
IN THE VINEYARD

Sourced from the heart of Napa's Saint Helena AVA
Since 1987, Corison has sourced their Napa Valley Cabernet from three prime benchland vineyards between Rutherford and St. Helena, celebrating their 36th harvest in 2022
These vineyards all share the distinct Bale gravelly loam soils, known for striking the right balance between moisture retention and drainage
Thanks to careful vineyard management, the resulting wines are marked by their refreshing natural acidity and gentle tannin grip, ensuring both great table presence and impressive longevity
