Corison Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

"Cathy Corison says she prefers ripeness at the intersection of elegance, and this wine illustrates what she means: there's still crunch and freshness, and there's room for the glorious Cabernet fruit to express itself. Aromatic, almost floral dark fruit broods on the nose, edged with potpourri. With air the flavours swirl around, filling the palate with the gorgeous ripeness of valley floor fruit." 95 points, Decanter

"Cathy Corison has been on an absolutely incredible run as she is producing some of the most compelling and consistent Cabernet Sauvignon in all of Napa Valley, and her 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is another simply outstanding effort. As this begins to open it releases a complex range of seductive aromatics, including blackberries and dark currants, which are woven together with spring florals, graphite, spices and crushed stones along with a lovely savory character all taking shape. This well-structured Cabernet continues to impress on the palate with its full-bodied, polished texture and remarkable overall balance and depth, which leads into the long, layered finish. While this is already showing plenty of early appeal, the 2014 is ultimately an age worthy wine, which will thrive in the cellar for well over a decade." 95 points, International Wine Cellar

"Aromas of wet earth and spices with sweet tobacco and currants. Fresh herbs. Medium body and ultra-fine tannins. Lively and bright. Better in 2020 but already a joy to drink." 93 points, Wine Spectator

"A classical Napa Valley Cabernet, this is bright, from its color straight through its taut line of cherry flavor. There’s an herbal aspect, bringing to mind lavender and eucalyptus, spicy, clean and integrated. Firmly built, this is structured for long development in the bottle." 93 points, Wine & Spirits

"From winemaker Cathy Corison, the straight 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon sports a medium ruby/purple color and offers a very pretty, elegant style in its blue fruits, hints of leafy herbs, and floral aromatics. These give way to a fresh, elegant Cabernet that has light tannin, good concentration, and a balanced, incredibly drinkable style. It should evolve nicely for 15+ years." 92 points, Jeb Dunnuck

"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is dark and powerful, with serious intensity. Cathy Corison's wines usually take a long time to come together, but the 2014 is surprisingly approachable. The effects of the drought are felt in the wine's concentration, and yet all the elements are in the right place. Dark red cherry, plum, licorice and menthol infuse the creamy, voluptuous finish. Deceptively medium in body, the 2014 packs a serious punch. Even so, it will drink well with minimal cellaring." 92 points, Vinous
