...dark, pliant and super-expressive. Open-knit and supple, the 2012 is open and quite delicious today... I imagine the 2012 will drink well for another decade plus, perhaps considerably longer. Black cherries, plums, cloves, new leather and chocolate flesh out on the resonant, expressive finish. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

I tasted through several Corison Napa Valley Cabernets with legendary winemaker, Cathy Corison and fellow wine writers Elaine Brown and Meg Houston Maker. 2012 was the youngest vintage we sampled, as expected it's quite youthful and fresh. Saturating aromas of black cherries, steeped blackberries, violets, and incense. In the mouth the fruit is plump, as is typical of the 2012 vintage, but this element is nicely balanced. It has the structure and stuffing to age, with lovely hints of baking spice and black pepper on the finish.

So good. Fresh fruit of a young wine with layers of complexity. Dusty minerality and perfectly balanced structure. Can't wait to see where this goes in a few years.

Cathy continues to quietly make some of the prettiest and most regal Cabernet in Napa. Fantastic now with more fruit than most baby corison and built for decades

Fabulous vintage... was glad to find one with a little age on it. Oak notes dominate as well as tobacco and herbs shining through. 13.9%
