Winegrower Cathy Corison produces artisanal Cabernet Sauvignon that speaks of place, sourcing great benchland vineyards between Rutherford and St. Helena in the Napa Valley.
The Corison Winery, in its timeless Victorian-style barn, is situated in the heart of Cathy's beloved Kronos Vineyard. With eight acres planted exclusively to St. Georges rootstock, Kronos is a historic treasure. As one of the last old Cabernet Vineyards in the Napa Valley, it is one of the few vineyards to have produced world class fruit continuously for more than four decades. Farmed organically and growing on gravelly loam soils, the gnarly old veterans produce scant yields that result in wines of rare concentration and refinement. They are juicy with blackberry and plum fruit and complex with a mineral note and exquisite violet perfume.
Cathy's wines are noted for their consistency and impeccable balance. Powerful and elegant at the same time, they grace the table and enjoy a long, distinguished life.
Come and experience a truly unique glimpse inside an authentic, small, family-owned working winery. Taste the wines crafted by Chronicle's Winemaker of the Year 2011.
