2017 Corison Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena
Cathy Corison has honed her skill and mastered the Cabernet Sauvignon grape. This 2017 was picked early, yet drinks with freshness and subtlety. Earthy and herbal aromas are the first to note. Secondly, aromas of rose petals and violets hit the senses. The palate is driven by the power of St. Helena fruit and shows plum, cassis, and crushed rocks. A beautiful representation of how Cabernet Sauvignon should taste.
95 Points, Wine Enthusiast
In the ’70s Napa was just a small budding wine industry and the vintners were making wines to rival France’s Bordeaux region. These wines were meant to age. They showed power. They were the epitome of elegance in the glass. Cathy Corison is one winemaker who hasn’t budged on her winemaking style. She opened her doors in 1987 after working at Chappellet and Freemark Abbey. With only a few thousand cases a year, she has consistently made world-class wines of structure and balance. These are old-school wines that are meant for serious palates, a dinner table, and the cellar. Don’t miss out on this tiny production wine that will stand out in any lineup.
