Fodor's Review

Respected for two 100% Cabernet Sauvignons, Corison Winery harks back to simpler days, with tastings amid oak barrels inside an unadorned, barnlike facility. The straightforward approach suits the style of Cathy Corison, one of the Napa Valley's first women owner-winemakers, who eschews blending because she believes her sunny St. Helena AVA vineyards (and other selected sites) can ripen Cabernet better than anywhere else in the world. Critics tend to agree, often waxing ecstatic about these classic wines. Library tastings start with a tour of the winery and the estate's Kronos Vineyard.They include both recent releases and older vintages, which together illustrate her consistency as a winemaker and how gracefully her wines mature. Tastings are by appointment.
