Corison Winery

Happy New Year from Corison Winery.

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.” - Cathy Corison

Corison wines have enjoyed some other wonderful press over the past few months. Check out these recent accolades:

Top 100 Wines of 2011, San Francisco Chronicle, 12/04/2011

~ 2008 Corison Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

"Cathy Corison's less-is-more approach is a 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, 92 pts.

"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, 94 pts.

"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
