Silk and velvet on the palate, 2018 sings with dense, rich layers of dark fruit from black cherries to plums, all set off by the snappy acidity that marks this as a classic Corison cab. Jeb Dunnuck says Cathy Corison’s Perennially a yardstick of balance and grace, Cathy Corison’s St. Helena Cabernet admirably sums up the best that the 2018 vintage has to offer: power, clarity and poise. Delicate and deft aromas of red plums and damp soil. The palate is silky and fine, with a zesty, high-toned quality through the finish.As with most great Napa Valley cabs, this beauty is already delicious but will get even better with a little time in the cellar.

Wine Enthusiast

This is a high-toned, tart and earthy wine from the beloved producer, structured and grippy in its youth. Textured, the savory character is etched in dried herb, violet and currant, it evolves to share elegant and delicate layers of blue fruit and black cherry. Graphite, turned earth and black pepper endure. Enjoy through 2038.
