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...

Ruby-red. Aromas of blackberry, licorice and minerals. Broader and more viscous in the mouth than the regular Napa Valley bottling, with lovely energy and depth to the dark berry and bitter chocolate flavors. A suggestion of violet pastille adds to the impression of inner-mouth perfume. The wine's impressive flavor intensity carries through the very long, suave finish. Conveys an impression of small-berry concentration. This will evolve in bottle for a long time. (Incidentally, I retasted the 2007 Kronos and have upped my score for this terrific wine to 93. It's still youthfully imploded but is showing far more sweetness to its crushed dark berry flavors than it did in the spring of 2010. This wine should enjoy a very slow evolution in bottle.)
