Corison Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

95 points Decanter: Seamless integration, with bright, juicy red and black fruit, ripe tannins, refreshing acidity and moderate alcohol. Layered and complex, unfolding with each sip. Drink 2013-2023. 95 points Wine & Spirits: ... It feels formal and reserved, contrasting fresh herbal notes of pipe tobacco and cedar with classic cabernet flavors of red and black currants. Impeccably balanced, this has a scent that's as compelling as any premier cru Pauillac, with the sunny profile of the Mayacamas benchlands...

Rainfall returned after three years of drought, pushing bud break, flowering and fruit-set back by at least two weeks at the beginning of the growing season. The summer brought cooler than normal temperatures so the lag continued into the ripening season. A two-day heat spike toward the end of August caused some sunburn, which required very selective picking. The cool growing season continued until a lovely Indian Summer set in in late September and October bringing the grapes to full ripeness. The long, cool season and small crop yielded a wine of uncommon concentration. Dark, brooding flavors of berries and cassis dance with dusty minerality, baking spices and violet perfume! - Winery ** Only 5 in Stock **

Good bright medium ruby. Blackberry, cassis and licorice on the nose, plus a whiff of adhesive tape. Tightly wound but not hard, with a slightly high-toned character, subtle sweetness and strong energy to the intense black fruit and licorice flavors. Densely packed, taut wine with a long, suavely tannic finish. This will require at least five to seven years of bottle aging upon release. - Stephen Tanzer 91+ Points Rainfall returned after three years of drought, pushing bud break, flowering and fruit-set back by at least two weeks at the beginning of the growing season.
