|Happy New Year from Corison
It is with great pleasure that I
share some exciting news:
Cathy Corison has been
named “Winemaker of the Year 2011” by the San Francisco
Chronicle! Cathy has made wine in Napa
for almost four decades and over the years has enjoyed
acclaim from collectors and critics alike, but this
honor is especially gratifying.
“It is heartening to know that wines like
mine, made in a more nuanced style, are being
discovered and appreciated by a whole new generation
of wine drinkers. I have long believed that the
power of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is best
expressed accompanied by elegance and balance. I am
both honored and grateful for this recognition.”

pleasure to behold... The classic graphite,
sandalwood, green olive and lively cherry and plum
fruit keep evolving and deepening, so keep this
bottle for a decade or more. Stunningly firm and
aromatic." - Jon Bonné
The Wine Advocate, Issue #198, 12/23/2011
~ 2008 Corison Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon,
"Dark plums, herbs, cassis and tobacco are
some of the aromas and flavors that emerge from this
beautifully delineated, elegant Cabernet Sauvignon.
... a wine that impresses for its understated
finesse." - Antonio Galloni
~ 2008 Corison "Kronos" Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon,
"Blackberries, flowers, spices and licorice
are some of the notes that wrap around the sensual,
inviting finish. The 2008 Kronos shows lovely
delineation and pure, understated class. Sweet red
cherries, kirsch and flowers add lift on the close."
- Antonio Galloni
