Winemaker Notes

Wow. This inky wine jumps out of the glass with ripe boysenberries and floral perfume. 2013 was a near-perfect vintage with ideal spring weather for flowering, which resulted in a bumper crop of deliciousness. With highs seldom climbing out of the 80F’s and chilly nighttime lows, an unseasonably cool summer gave the wine its firm structure. Lush ripe red fruit with balancing natural acidity complement the characteristic Kronos viscosity. The tannins are assertive but feel like velvet.

D 99
Decanter
Cathy Corison's 2013 Kronos is a little more brooding than her regular Cabernet Sauvignon, with darker fruit tones, richer notes of cocoa and more volume on the palate, but the two share a wonderful perfume of roses and violets, expressed with an exuberance unusual for Cabernet Sauvignon. A stunner.

Wine & Spirits
Napa Valley cabernet is often formidable, but it’s rare to find one that’s both formidable and fresh. Kronos is racy in 2013, lean and lithe with the energy and dynamism of the vintage. Kronos is Cathy Corison’s estate vineyard, eight acres surrounding her winery on the west side of Highway 29 in southern St. Helena. The cabernet was planted in 1971 on St. George rootstock, which has the benefit of naturally limiting yields; it also helped the vines survive the region’s most recent bout with phylloxera. The freshness of this wine’s acidity is unusual in contemporary Napa Valley (especially in the up-valley reaches of St. Helena); it lends a tart, fruit-skin crunch to the red cherry and darker plum flavors, and lifts the scent with violet notes. Brilliant cabernet, this is rooted in the best aspects of Napa Valley’s past. Cellar a case and it will provide exceptional drinking for years to come.

James Suckling
A glorious old vine wine with mineral, stone, blueberry, black currant and wet earth. Full body, silky tannins and a long finish. Salty undertone, even iodine. There's an ethereal quality to this that makes you think. Released spring of 2017.

Corison Wines Corison Barn Exterior Winery Image

Corison Winery is a small family farm producing delicious Cabernet Sauvignons that speak of place. Over three decades, Cathy Corison and William Martin have built a special home to celebrate the best of their little corner of the world, benchland in the heart of the Napa Valley. Known for power and elegance, Corison wines are balanced to grace the table and are recognized throughout the world for their longevity and consistency.

In 1987, Cathy Corison began to purchase great Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from prime benchland vineyards between Rutherford and St. Helena, intent on making powerful and elegant Cabernet Sauvignon that speaks of place. These well-drained alluvial soils had a long history of producing balanced, age-worthy, world-class wines, reaching back to the late 19th century. In her early years everything was done with smoke and mirrors, using purchased fruit and space in others’ wineries.

In 1995, with the purchase of Kronos Vineyard, a property that had been a farm for over a century, there was finally an estate vineyard and a place to build a winery. In the spring of 1999, they broke ground to build their stately Victorian-style winery barn, designed by Cathy’s husband, William Martin. The second estate vineyard, Sunbasket, a stone’s throw from the winery, was purchased in 2015 after sourcing it for over 25 years.
