About Corison Winery
Cathy Corison made her first vintage of Corison Cabernet in 1987. Since then, she has earned a name for suave, fresh, harmonious Napa Valley wines...
91(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2005
($90; aged in 50% new oak; made from a ten-acre parcel of 30-year-old vines next to the Corison winery on Highway 29, at the south end of St. Helena Good full ruby. Brooding aromas of black raspberry, minerals, violet and bitter chocolate. Sweeter, denser and fatter than the 2003 and 2002 Napa bottlings, with claret-like notes of leather, smoke, cedar and graphite. Here the acids are more obviously integrated, but there's still a bit of tarry oak to be absorbed. Finishes with lovely length and lingering sweetness. The yield, always low in this vineyard, was just 1-1/2 tons per acre.
