Highlights

  • All four of our Cabernet Sauvignon lots are on the table for blending only once a year, expressly for this Premiere Reserve offering
  • Our estate Kronos Vineyard gets this one chance to come out and play with the other lots, bringing a deep, brooding note to the blend
  • Adding to the depth of the conversation is the interaction between old and young vines
  • The vineyard sources hail from the bench between Rutherford and St. Helena

This rare expression of Napa Valley winemaking is one of only 60 bottles that will ever be made. Think of it as a bit of Napa Valley history in your cellar and celebrated in a glass with friends and family. All four of the Corison Cabernet Sauvignon lots are on the table for blending only once a year, expressly for your Premiere Napa Valley wine. Corison’s estate Kronos Vineyard gets this one chance to come out and play with the other lots, which all hail from benchland between Rutherford and St. Helena, a very special corner of the world for Cabernet Sauvignon. Added to the nuances of this wine is the interplay of old vines with new, with the result a lovely intersection of power and elegance that speaks eloquently of a particular place and time.

Winemaker, Cathy Corison

I've made wine in the Napa Valley for 40 years, first for others including Chappellet Vineyard, Staglin Family Vineyard, York Creek and Long Meadow Ranch. Eventually I found that there was a wine inside me that needed to get out and I began to make the Corison Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

Country born: United States

Education: BA Pomona College, Biology
MS University of California, Davis, Enology

Years in the wine industry: 30+ years

Honors / Awards:
San Francisco Chronicle Winemaker of the Year 2011

Winemaking Philosophy:
Great grapes make great wine. Pick ripe grapes from a terrific, balanced vineyard and let Mother Nature do the rest. My goal is to make Cabernet that is both powerful and elegant, graces the table, enjoys a long, distinguished life and speaks of place.
