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 truly unique glimpse inside a small, family-owned working winery the next time you are in the Napa Valley.
We have budbreak! Welcome to the 2018 vintage. The cover crop is mowed and, once tilled into the soil, the life in our organically-farmed soils will make the nutrition available to the vines. With the tender buds emerging, we’re on frost alert as the final spring storms blow through. We are suckering the vines, removing any shoots growing where we don’t want them. This will focus the energy of the vine and begin to open up the canopy to let the right amount of air and light in to the developing fruit. In the cellar, the 2017’s are shaping up nicely, almost ready to blend this summer. We just released the tiny 2014 Kronos Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon to club.
Cathy Corison was in Chicago in May, honored to be a finalist for the James Beard Foundation Award for Outstanding Wine, Beer, or Spirits Professional. Nearly half of the James Beard Foundation Award finalists were women this year! That’s a big deal.
We are excited to introduce our Collector's Vertical Tasting. Designed for serious Cabernet collectors interested in a deeper understanding of how Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon can speak eloquently of time and place, this flight features four decades of Cabernet, including two of our single vineyard estate wines. This is a rare opportunity to add these sold-out library vintages to your collection. As these wines are very scarce, this tasting is offered on Fridays at 10:00, and is limited to 6 people.
$150/person ($100/wine club member)
