Shane had heard about Corison Cabernets from one of the guy's at K&L in San Francisco, and we almost missed the winery completely as we drove south on Hwy 29 in St Helena. Also, it was late in the day so we were surprised when we were let in for a tasting (we found out later that they thought we were a different group that had an appointment). Either way we were very pleased to have stumbled across Corison. Straight away we were delighted to see that they only focused on Cabernets, all of which were excellent. The winery itself is small, and the tasting room could only cater to a small crowd so definitely do try to call ahead or you could be disappointed.

Single vineyard estate wine with only 400 cases produced. Excellent wine drinking very well right now but will last for years to come. Long finish with great structure. Best wine of the day

Pre-Release. Too early to tell but the 2002 looks like it is going to be excellent. Will come back to taste again.

100% Cabernet. It is young but will improve. Good fruit upfront but lacks a big finish

Nice nose of chocolate and blackcurrants with great balance of fruit and tannins - nice and chewy on the finish.

Extremely fruity. Would be nice on a sunny day. Actually tasted refreshing as we had been drinking heavy reds all day
