Corison Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, a red wine, uses Cabernet Sauvignon grapes sourced from St. Helena AVA in California. The wine has 13.80% ABV. Violet and dried rose perfume jumps out of the glass along with tart cherry, blueberry, plum and cassis fruit. Flavors follow with cocoa and refreshing minerality joining the party, and a tantalizing white pepper note for interest. Signature velvety tannins add texture and a gentle grip to complete the picture.

8 reviews for Corison Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

  1. WS

    Delightfully fresh in feel, with Damson plum, cherry paste and red licorice notes that come across as bright and engaging, while violet and anise details chime through. Ample length and energy, with fruit in reserve, all with a fun, almost care-free feel thanks to its relatively toast-free finish. Drink now through 2035. 2,700 cases made.

  2. WE

    This is a high-toned, tart and earthy wine from the beloved producer, structured and grippy in its youth. Textured, the savory character is etched in dried herb, violet and currant, it evolves to share elegant and delicate layers of blue fruit and black cherry. Graphite, turned earth and black pepper endure. Enjoy through 2038.

  3. DEC

    Perennially a yardstick of balance and grace, Cathy Corison’s St. Helena Cabernet admirably sums up the best that the 2018 vintage has to offer: power, clarity and poise. Delicate and deft aromas of red plums and damp soil. The palate is silky and fine, with a zesty, high-toned quality through the finish.

  4. IWR

    The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon from Corison is beautiful example of a refined Napa Cabernet. It begins with lovely aromatics of black raspberries, dark plums and hints of blackberries that are joined by graphite, tobacco, spring florals and licorice which all come together beautifully in the glass. On the palate this possesses a gorgeous medium body that is wellstructured and defined, with remarkable overall balance and poise. It goes on to display wonderful freshness, and focus, along with vibrant acidity that provides a burst of energy through the long finish. This is a wonderful Cabernet that is built to age incredibly well, that said, it would be best to allow this a few years of bottle age before approaching. 

  5. JD

    I always love the wines from Cathy Corison, and 2018 is a vintage that certainly plays to her strengths with its classic, elegant style. Looking at her 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon, this medium ruby/purple-colored effort offers an old school bouquet of red and black currants, menthol, spring flowers, and violets to go with a medium-bodied, elegant style on the palate. It’s not a blockbuster, but it offers medium-bodied richness, terrific overall balance, seamless tannins, and a great finish. Drink this classic, balanced, satisfying Cabernet from Corison over the coming 15 years or so.

  6. JS

    Aromas of currants, walnuts, stones and berries follow through to a full body with firm, layered tannins and a pretty finish. Lovely polish to this. Needs a year or two to come completely together, but already delicious. Try after 2021.

  7. OB

    The 2018 Corison ‘Napa Valley’ Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful offering that shows violets and red currant aromatics alongside sage, blackberry compote and shades of pipe tobacco. The sense of balance is gorgeous here as red and dark fruits parade with graphite, leather and freshly tilled soils. Seamless and highly refined, this shows beautiful restraint and bright acidity that should carry this wine over two decades. Drink 2021-2040.

  8. VIN

    The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is quite inviting in its first impression, even if all the elements haven’t quite come together just yet. That won’t be an issue in a few years’ time, but for now the 2018 is best left alone untouched for a bit. Bright acids, red berry fruit and lifted aromatics make for a delicious and promising Napa Valley Cabernet. The Napa Valley Cabernet is a pure St. Helena wine.
