Corison Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

$89.99

Cathy Corison makes one of our favorite "true" Napa Cabernets from great benchland vineyards between Rutherford and St. Helena. If you haven't tried her Corison Cabs yet do yourself a favor and discover them now. 95 Points International Wine Report:  "The 2013 is another remarkable wine to add to the impressive list of amazing Napa Valley Cabernet from Cathy Corison. This instantly opens with irresistible aromas of fresh ripe blackberries and currants woven together with loads of intense violets and graphite, along with hints of dried sage and pencil shavings. On the palate this shows remarkable concentration and depth, yet remains beautifully balanced and focused with wonderful purity through the velvety, layered finish. This improves with each second in the glass and I only expect this to continue to evolve gracefully for many years to come. The 2013 certainly has a wonderful future in store."          96 Points Decanter:  "“Beautifully perfumed aromas of rose petal, voilets, blackberry, dark chocolate and incipient cigar tobacco burst from the glass in a striking array, the prelude to a wine that’s structured around refined, savory tannins and juicy acidity.  An ethereal and classically proportioned Cabernet which will age effortlessly thanks to it’s flawless balance, likely putting on weight with bottle age. Terrific stuff: not to be missed.  Drink 2023-2064."   “Beautifully perfumed aromas of rose petal, voilets, blackberry, dark chocolate and incipient cigar tobacco burst fro the glass in a striking array, the prelude to a wine that’s structured around refined, savory tannins and juicy acidity.  An ethereal and classically proportioned Cabernet which will age effortlessly thanks to it’s flawless balance, likely putting on weight with bottle age.

Here the flavors are unusually dark and intense, with plenty of blue and black stone fruits. Graphite, cloves and licorice contribute to an overall impression of gravitas. Far from an easygoing wine, the 2013 Napa Valley Cabernet needs time in bottle to truly shine. Hints of violet, lavender and plum add the final shades of nuance. All of the signatures of the vintage come through beautifully. The translucent, mineral-laced finish is especially appealing. Frankly, it's hard to put the glass down."

Outstanding power is hidden underneath its youthful facade, it needs time to evolve, either in the decanter or cellar. It shows a dense fruit profile, ripe but with a vibrant backbone, evolving complexity that developing through a long finish.

2011 Vintage- Restrained fruit with a little dust on the back end. Very nice wine with ample acidity. Enjoy now or a few years from now

Definitely one of the best Napa Cabs of the vintage. Dark cassis and blackberry combine with sweet herbs and a hint of oak spice. Long, savory finish ensures this will only get better over the next 15+ years.

Cathy hits another one out of the park. Just beginning to hint at its potential. Bright and youthful.
