The 12 Wines of Christmas - Day1: Rich Cabernet
It is winter, of course, and that means it's time to finally exult in Cabernet...our latest choice(s)... the 2008 Corison Napa Valley ($70)
"Corison: elegant, drinkable, remarkable. Cathy Corison has steadfastly been making her own style of wine for a quarter of a century; or perhaps more accurately letting her vineyards express themselves, and bottling the result."
"In the end, I can't make wine any better than the grapes that come in"
"I want to be as close to my wines as possible. There's an intuitive thing that happens, and that's what makes great wine"
"And I must give special credit to the 1989 Corison.Â Cathy Corison's production is small, but her 1989 is surely the single most beautiful expression yet of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.Â It is a study in what can be achieved when everything is right"
"Top 100 wines of 2008"
"1001 wines you must taste before you die"
"Not desperately intense or hot or massive or tannic, it's just so gentle and harmonious. A fine riposte to high alcohol Cabs"
"[Corison] reminds that great Cabernet is born from balance and depth more than unbridled ripeness"
"Arguably the best cabernet in the Napa Valley"
"Uncompromising in her commitment to Cabernets that have the stamp of terroir as well as their Napa roots."
"Face-to-face with her tremendous efforts and intangible artistry, people buy her wine because they believe in her ability to wrestle an amazing bottle from the land, no matter the growing season"
"Visiting the Corison Winery tasting room on Highway 29 near St. Helena, on one of the most heavily traveled wine routes in the world, is a trek back in time"
"One of Napa's most expressive single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons"
"Corison's wines, like the ancient pottery shards that grace the labels, are of another time and place, even as they are firmly and undeniably some of the best of Napa"
"A Wine of One's Own"
"Corison makes wines to be great all their lives, a patient, provocative style"
"Corison: Not Just Any Napa Cabernet"
"Wines of clarity, balance and finesse"
"Nothing but the best"
"There is a tension in Corison's wines between power and elegance"
"Hiding in plain sight. Her signature style: viscous and full of fruit, with a hefty structure and doses of ripe tannin that portend a life measured in decades"
"Corison- California Cabernet with Subtlety"
"An iconoclast develops elegance and balance from Napa Cabernet"
