Winegrower Cathy Corison produces artisanal, age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon that speaks of place, sourcing great benchland vineyards between Rutherford and St. Helena. We invite you to experience a unique glimpse inside a small, family-owned working winery the next time you are in the Napa Valley.
2021 just set!
We are staying busy in the vineyard, as summer fast approaches. The vines are just finishing bloom, and it looks like we got a good set. Now canopy management begins. We are nearly finished with our second suckering pass where we remove all the shoots growing where we don’t want them. Soon we will be removing lateral shoots in the fruit zone on the morning-sun side of the vines to get the right amount of air and light in to the fruit. Later, on the afternoon-sun side, we will remove laterals more selectively to avoid sunburn from the intense heat of summer. Having received only a third of our normal rainfall this winter, we are carefully watching the vines and selectively irrigating as needed. Our new blocks, in their third leaf, are developing nicely. We expect that their final structure will be established by the end of the season. Cathy is excited to make a little wine from them this year!
In the cellar we will bottle the 2019’s mid-June, and blend the 2020’s in time for harvest in the fall.
Verticals are so interesting! Taste how these three very different growing seasons express themselves in the glass. This set includes a bottle each of the 2015, 2016 and 2017 Corison Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
We are excited to offer the Coravin Pivot, so you can enjoy these wines for up to two weeks. Click here for more details.
We are hosting most guests outside on our shady crush pad. Your visit will be a highlight of your next trip to the Napa Valley!
Choose between several tastings, including our Collector’s Vertical Tasting, designed for serious Cabernet collectors interested in a deeper understanding of how Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon can speak eloquently of time and place. Also, we have just introduced a Kronos Vertical Tasting – dive deep and explore the terroir of that special vineyard.
