For the last several decades Cathy Corison has been quietly carving out a legacy as one of the most important winemakers in Napa Valley, California. Since her debut vintage in 1987, Corison’s wines have consistently eschewed the fads of the moment in favor of an abiding commitment to classical balance. In her own words “Stylistically, I haven’t changed since the very beginning”, she says. “I continue to believe that balanced wines are more interesting at maturity, they age better, and they grace the table better.”
She aspires to make Cabernet Sauvignon that is both powerful and elegant: “Cabernet is going to be powerful wherever and however you grow it, but it’s way more interesting to me at that intersection with elegance.” This commitment to her craft led her to purchase what has now become one of the more important vineyard sites for Cabernet in all of Napa Valley, Kronos Vineyard, and an equally beautiful site in Saint Helena, Sunbasket.
