Wine of the Day

2009 Corison, Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley.
Cathy Corison’s 2009 Napa Cab is a stunning beautiful full of life, focus and very seductive with blueberry, cassis, licorice and black currant layers bursting from the glass. The nose starts with wild flowers, smoke and vanilla and the palate is rich, but not heavy with plum, blackberry and cherry fruit plus refined tannins and sublime detail. Complex sweet tobacco, cinnamon, mineral notes and cedar spice add interest to this wonderful Cabernet Sauvignon, which also should get better with age and fill out over the next few years in bottle. Corison’s 2009 is under 14% Alcohol and this does translate to a positive to the overall balance which is suburb and elegant while still being true to her style of firm structured wines. This is a wine you want from this vintage no question and a brilliant effort, don’t miss this one.
