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.
Canopy management continues as we remove all lateral shoots in the fruit zone on the morning-sun side of the vine. On the afternoon-sun side we remove laterals more selectively to avoid sunburn from the intense heat of summer. We enjoyed excellent weather for bloom, and it is looking like we’ve set a good crop. The berries are beginning to size up.
In the cellar, we’ve racked the 2016’s out of barrels in preparation for bottling. We’ve just released the 2016 Corazón Gewürztraminer, in time to enjoy with your summer barbeques.
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 weekdays at 10:00, and is limited to 6 people.
$150/person ($100/wine club member)
