Corison Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Category:

Cabernet Sauvignon from St. Helena, Napa Valley, California

Tasting Notes

The entire spectrum of Cabernet Sauvignon fruit flavors is present and accounted for, from red cherries and raspberries through blueberries, to purple plums, black cassis and marionberries, for remarkable complexity. A floral perfume of dried roses, violets and lavender is already jumping out of the glass. Signature Rutherford Dust minerality joins baking spices, notes of cocoa, dried thyme, and a whiff of tar and anise. Tannins that are firm and grippy, though velvety, lend structure and mouthfeel. It is going to be a lot of fun watching this wine over time.

Wine Enthusiast – 96 Points

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. Enjoy best 2029–2039.

Pairing Notes

Pairs well with cured meats and cheeses such as Asiago, Cheddar, Gouda, Manchego, Parmesan, Pecorino, Blue Cheese, Gorgonzola, Roquefort, Stilton, Taleggio.
