CAL CABS TO HUNT DOWN FROM 2005 “Make no mistake, California 2005 Cabs are juicy, full-flavoured and potent, yet many of them show restraint…Warm, spicy, berry nose. Fine, plum jam, spicy notes. Plenty of weight. Firm, crisp tannins. Nice length…has the structure and moderate alcohol (13.6%) to age for years. Blackcurrant, Christmas spice, tobacco... Closes with succulence and crispness.” Corison, Napa Valley "5 Stars" Decanter Magazine 2008
TOP 100 WINES 2008 - San Francisco Chronicle"Cathy Corison coaxed a smoky, anise-tinged effort from the 2005 vintage. Balanced, fresh and ripe, with sweet black fruit, plum graphite and a big grippy finish, very much in line with her more structured, firmly tannic and age worthy approach."
2005 Corison Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon ... 95 points Wine Enthusiast, February 2009
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: Good full ruby-red. Musky aromas of dried cherry, cedar, fresh herbs, incense and tobacco. Dense, juicy and fine-grained, with lovely verve to its delineated flavors of raspberry, spices, loam, leather and herbs. Finishes ripe and long but delicate, with nicely integrated acidity, understated sweetness and fine tannins that dust the front teeth. Mouth-filling Cabernet without any undue weight, a bit in the style of the '08 91 pts Stephen Tanzer, September 2012
