  • Hi VO,Nice to see you here again.I agree that what you experienced in disconcerting.  Especially with a solid producer.  I haven't tasted Corison lately, so cannot comment directly.  Could it be that the wine needs time?  Maybe you're tasting infants?   I am surprised since you say everything else is spot on for you.  My thought is that perhaps ...

  • Welcome back, indeed.Ditto what Emark said.  I'm a big fan of controlled experiments. If it's unique to Corison, that should tell you.  Then you can try to figure out what is going on at that winery to cause that.When I went to Piedmont, Cavallotto was the one place we went to that openly used rotovinifiers.  I could absolutely taste the terroir...

  • I was wondering what sort of new topic I could start that would pair nicely with my previous posting 'Weekday Wines'; well here it is - Weekend Wines.  Sometimes I just have to stop and take a minute to pat myself on the back for my quick wit but alas, this isn't one of those times.  Anyway, why not talk about wines we enjoy on weekends?  These ...

  • Hey everyone, what are some of your favorite 'everyday' or M-F types of wines to accompany a regular dinner?  I personally have enjoyed the Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, and I usually pick it up from Total Wines out here in Virginia.  This is one of those fruit-forward cabs that isn't too complex for me to appreciate, and it usually cost...

  • Corison Wines Cabernet Sauvignon 2009


    Chalky and earthy on the nose with subtle vanilla oak shadings framing focused, spicy cabernet fruit all curranty and blueberry toned. This smells like old school Napa cabernet. Light and a bit austere on entry with crisp, earth red fruits on the palate and a smooth integrated mouthfeel thats built as much on acid as it is on tannins. The fruit ... Read More

    Wine review by Gregory Dal Piaz
