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.
And it’s a wrap! The grapes are all in and vintage 2019 has finished primary fermentation. During the first few weeks, the fermenting wine was regularly pumped over the cap (skins). Cathy carefully controlled the temperature to extract all the good stuff from the skins, including color and flavor.
Once the wine is fully dry, the skins are pressed, gently extracting any remaining wine. Some of the lots remain in the tanks for maceration, where the wine is in contact with the cap for another couple weeks before pressing. This process helps create that lovely Corison Cabernet mouthfeel.
After pressing, the new wine is put down to French Oak barrels, half new each year. During 22 months of aging the oak notes dovetail seamlessly with the evolving Cabernet flavors. All these details contribute to our signature power and elegance.
We are honored by these accolades and have a limited number of bottles available for purchase by friends of Corison Winery.
As Thanksgiving approaches, we are pleased to offer some special wines to share with your family and friends. There is always a bottle of Corazón Gewürztraminer on Cathy Corison's Thanksgiving table, and magnums on the table make it a party! Add a magnum or 3-liter bottle to any order and shipping will be included.*
With deep gratitude from our winery family to you and yours, we hope you have a joyous holiday!
