NAPA VALLEY CABERNET WITH POWER & ELEGANCE

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.

Cathy and William toast the summer solstice with glasses of Corison Cabernet Sauvignon out in Kronos Vineyard.

In The Vineyard

Happy Summer Solstice! Spring was very mild with perfect weather for flowering, leading to a terrific set. The berries are sizing up and it is looking like we’ll have a bountiful crop this year. The vines are so happy, with lots of water still in the soil from late rains. The weeds thrived as well in our organic vineyards, which we manage mechanically with our electric tractor. We just finished our third mowing pass!

Throughout the growing season we stay busy with canopy management, starting with suckering in early spring, pruning all shoots that are sprouting where we don’t want them. We are now removing laterals in the fruit zone, on the morning sun side, to let the perfect amount of dappled light and air in to the developing clusters.

This is the sixth year we’ve done all of the vineyard work ourselves, so we’re over the moon that the vines get what they need, when they need it, more than ever before.

Best Overall Cabernet

In the recent Robb Report article, The 11 Best Cabernet Sauvignons to Drink Right Now, From Napa Valley to Australia, Mike DeSimone and Jeff Jenssen sang high praises for the 2020 Corison Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, naming it their Best Overall Cabernet Sauvignon. 

“(Cathy Corison) is one of our favorite producers and makes consistent, delectable wines year after year, and her wines are very well reviewed by other colleagues whom we respect. Her 2020 Cab has aromas of black plum, fennel frond, cigar box, and cassis. Elegant and fruit forward on the palate it offers flavors of black cherry, dried Mediterranean herbs, and crushed violet petals all wrapped in a smooth tannic sheath.”
