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.
The Corazón Rosé is a serendipitous byproduct of our flagship Cabernet Sauvignon. Juice, “bled” as the grapes were crushed, was fermented in small French oak barrels to total dryness. Aging in barrel on primary yeast lees for six months gave this rosé a creamy mouthfeel, breadth and gravitas.
The jewel-like, pale salmon color is a delight to the eye. Aromas, including dried rose petals, jump out of the glass. Bright and rich at the same time, complex flavors include Bing cherry, red currant and plum. Snappy acidity keeps it lively.
Cathy Corison is a finalist for the James Beard Foundation Award for Outstanding Wine, Beer or Spirits Producer, for the third year in a row! It’s such an honor. To celebrate, we are highlighting the 2016 Corison Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Cathy’s 30th vintage from a near-perfect season.
Crush is the best time of the year to visit the winery. Come watch us make wine over the next few weeks – the smell of active fermentations is enchanting! As a tiny, family-run winery, we currently are hosting individual groups outside. We have added a few important changes to our usual routines to comply with all new health regulations. Your visit will be a highlight of your next trip to the Napa Valley!
