Corison Wine, under the meticulous craftsmanship of winemaker Cathy Corison, presents the remarkable Corison Wine Cabernet Sauvignon 2019. Harvested two weeks later than usual, this vintage embodies the cool summer and fall of 2019, which yielded a superb growing season. The extended hang-time allowed for the development of complex, intense flavors, while the cold nights contributed to the wine’s inky color and balanced natural acidity.

In the glass, this Cabernet Sauvignon reveals a captivating range of fruit flavors. From vibrant red cherries and raspberries to luscious blueberries, deep purple plums, black cassis, and succulent marionberries, the wine showcases an exceptional level of complexity. A fragrant perfume of dried roses, violets, and lavender immediately entices the senses, offering a bouquet that is both alluring and enchanting.

Exemplifying the terroir of Rutherford Dust, this wine intertwines mineral notes with enticing aromas of baking spices, cocoa, dried thyme, and a subtle hint of tar and anise. The tannins, firm and grippy yet velvety, provide structure and an opulent mouthfeel. This Cabernet Sauvignon is a testament to the winemaker’s artistry and promises an exciting evolution over time.

Acclaimed by renowned critics, the Corison Wine Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 has received high praise. With 96 points from Wine & Spirits and Wine Enthusiast, it showcases the elegance and textural beauty achieved by Cathy Corison. Described as dark, structured, and aged in French oak, this wine captivates with brooding black fruit, cedar, and clove, balanced by underlying acidity.

Decanter awards this vintage 94 points, highlighting its depth, layered flavors, and texture. While restrained now, it promises to shine brightly with cellar aging. James Suckling also commends its perfumed nose of blackberries, dark cherries, cocoa, and nutmeg, along with its medium body, fine tannins, and vibrant acidity.

This wine’s freshness and floral-laced style, as recognized by Wine Spectator, garners it 94 points. With hints of violet, hibiscus, and rose petal, it displays complexity and a promising future. Wine Advocate acknowledges its classic Corison style, balanced concentration, and silky texture, awarding it 93 points.

Vinous describes the 2019 vintage as charming, with bright acidity and flavors of sweet red cherry, plum, cedar, tobacco, and spice. Jeb Dunnuck highlights the wine’s dark blackcurrants, cassis, and hints of violets, applauding its balance, integrated acidity, and great finish.

The Corison Wine Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 is a quintessential expression of Cathy Corison’s winemaking prowess. It is destined to evolve beautifully over the next two decades, making it a captivating addition to any wine lover’s cellar.


5 reviews for Corison Wine Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

  1. WS

    A very fresh, floral-laced style, offering a bright beam of cassis and plum gelée laced with flashes of violet, hibiscus and rose petal. Nicely grounded through the finish, with alder and warm earth hints filling in. Approachable, but this has more to show in time. Best from 2023 through 2036.

  2. WA

    Delicate herbal shadings accent the cassis notes on the nose of Corison’s 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s classic Corison, balanced and concentrated without being showy or weighty, silky in feel, with a long, lingering finish and two decades of ageability.

  3. JD

    Lots of dark, blackcurrants, cassis, darker chocolate, and hints of violets emerge from the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon, a medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced St. Helena Napa Cabernet Sauvignon offering nicely integrated acidity, terrific balance, and a great finish. This quintessential Cathy Corison Cabernet shines on all accounts. It’s going to evolve for two decades.

  4. JS

    A perfumed nose of blackberries, dark cherries, cedar, cocoa and nutmeg. Violets too. Medium body with fine tannins and bright acidity. Fresh and refined with a bright core of wild fruit and a long, flavorful finish. Drink or hold.

  5. VIN

    The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is full of charm. It offers all of the natural intensity of the year, with bright acids that keep the flavors bright. Sweet red cherry, plum, cedar, tobacco and spice all build effortlessly. This open-knit yet classically built Cabernet is likely to offer a wide window of drinkability over the next 15-20 years. As always, Cathy Corison’s Napa Valley Cabernet is a blend of three sites in St. Helena.

Wine Enthusiast
Savory and complicated in saline, woody notes of cedar and dry tannin, this old-school wine is dark and structured, aged 20 months in French oak, half of it new. Brooding black fruit and clove give it an edgy richness that is restrained and balanced by underlying acidity.

Connoisseurs Guide
Among the most mannerly of the leading Cabernets in California, this bottling has always been noted for its promise to grow over time, and this vintage is no exception... There are balance, depth and layers of fruit played against the quality of sinew that is never gruff or coarse yet demands time in the cellar… The wine will simply get better and better for a decade and more. And that is a proposition we will take.
DEC 94
Decanter
Alluring aromas of dark cassis, graphite, cedar and wild herbs. It has a striking depth with layered flavours and texture, and while restrained now it is incredibly well-built and in need of time in the cellar to fully shine. Reveals subtle hints of fresh black and blue berries, currants and dried herbs tinged with red florals. Finishes with polish, energy and poise.

The brilliant 2019 Corison ‘Napa Valley’ Cabernet Sauvignon is a powerful effort that really needs an hour of air prior to consuming. Once aroused this reveals dark currant and espresso bean aromas alongside suggestions of kirsch cordial and wet stone with black florals. The palate is utterly seamless throughout the drinking experience with no rough edges. Finishing long with graphite and black fruits, this downright delicious, weightless effort will surely live on for another two decades.

Wine & Spirits
The 2019 vintage might be something of an outlier for Cathy Corison, who picked two weeks later than usual, taking advantage of the cool season from summer into fall. This wine is, in fact, an idealized version of her benchland cabernet sauvignon, holding on to the elegance she regularly achieves, while adding a luscious textural beauty that more often comes from bottle age. James Conley of NYC’s Keen’s Chophouse found the aroma suggested a more delicate wine than the density and extract this one carries in its “cabernet grape tannins and intriguing, lifted fruit. If someone said, ‘I love Napa, but show me what I’m missing.’ I’d say, ‘Well, try this.’” Warm and explosive in its energy, this wine carries an imprint of the benchland soils in the play of darkness and light, in the detailed tannins that make you crave another taste.
