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.
With gorgeous St. Helena September weather, grapes are starting to roll in. Cathy walks the vineyards daily, checking for ripeness and monitoring the vines. She looks at many components, including vine status, flavor, aromatics, acidity, sugar level, and color, in making her picking decision. Warm days and lovely cool nights create an optimum harvest season. It’s an exciting time to visit the winery. Take a walk in Kronos vineyard, then grab a seat in the barrel room to taste some Cabernets while watching the crew craft vintage 2019!
Join us for our Corison Library Tasting, featuring the 2016 and 2015 Corison Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons, the 2014 Corison Sunbasket Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, and the 2013 Corison Kronos Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon.

We are excited to announce the release of the 2016 Corison Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Cathy Corison has been hand-crafting the Corison Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon since 1987, and this release marks her 30th vintage!
Cathy has this to say about the wine: "The 2016 reminds me of the 2014 with the volume turned up a bit. Redolent with bright red currant, blueberry, tart cherry and darker plums, cassis and blackberry fruit, it is wildly complex. The fruit aromatics are complexed by baking spices and floral notes including dried rose petals and violets. Varietal dried herbs add yet another dimension. An alluring yin of minerality and snappy natural acidity play off against the yang of a broad, luscious mouthfeel."
