96 points Decanter

Beautifully perfumed aromas of rose petal, violets, blackberry, dark chocolate and incipient cigar tobacco burst from the glass in a striking array, the prelude to a wine thatâ€ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢€Å¾Ã‚¢s structured around refined, savory tannins and juicy acidity.  An ethereal and classically proportioned Cabernet which will age effortlessly thanks to its flawless balance, likely putting on weight with bottle age.  Terrific stuff; not to be missed.

The 2013 is another remarkable wine to add to the impressive list of amazing Napa Valley Cabernet from Cathy Corison. This instantly opens with irresistible aromas of fresh ripe blackberries and currants woven together with loads of intense violets and graphite, along with hints of dried sage and pencil shavings. On the palate this shows remarkable concentration and depth, yet remains beautifully balanced and focused with wonderful purity through the velvety, layered finish. This improves with each second in the glass and I only expect this to continue to evolve gracefully for many years to come. The 2013 certainly has a wonderful future in store.   September, 2015 (JD)

A deep, inky wine, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is endowed with serious depth. Here the flavors are unusually dark and intense, with plenty of blue and black stone fruits. Graphite, cloves and licorice contribute to an overall impression of gravitas. Far from an easygoing wine, the 2013 Napa Valley Cabernet needs time in bottle to truly shine. Hints of violet, lavender and plum add the final shades of nuance. All of the signatures of the vintage come through beautifully. The translucent, mineral-laced finish is especially appealing. Frankly, it's hard to put the glass down. (Oct 2015)

Cathy Corison s 2013 Napa Valley bottling is the first cabernet sauvignon I have tasted from this vintage, and the wine is an absolute classic in the making. The beautifully youthful and pure nose wafts from the glass in a blend of red and black cherries, a hint of meatiness, incipient notes of Rutherford Dust, cigar wrapper, a touch of allspice and a very refined framing of cedary oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full bodied, focused and impeccably balanced, with a fine core of fruit, ripe tannins, lovely soil inflection and outstanding length and grip on the cool, classy and nascently complex finish. At 13.5 percent alcohol, this wine is just perfect in all respects and simply needs the addition of bottle age to blossom into a hauntingly beautiful bottle of cabernet sauvignon.   John Gilman, July-August 2015, #58

A very minerally and subtle wine with blueberry, blackberry and lemon rind. Some saltiness. Full to medium body, balanced and refined. Delicious already but shows wonderful tension and finesse. Drink or hold. (January 15, 2016)

A comfortable approach to Napa Valley cabernet, this wine allows the region s generosity to show through without any excess weight or aggressive tannins. It s a light-bodied, red currant scented cabernet, fragrant and clean, with a spark of acidity to balance the fleshy richness of the fruit. A juicy, mouthwatering wine for roast duck. (January 2016)

As a longtime wine lover and wine professional, I sometimes have gotten wrapped up in prototypes of what seems to be normal. Taking a look at a category like Napa Valley there is no mystery that many of the valley's most prized wines have a little residual sugar left in the finished wines this the secret that makes many Napa Cabernets so supple, layered and easy to drink. Cathy Corison's wines are different high acid, biting and well-balanced. The 2013 Corison Cabernet Sauvignon is frisky with red currants and dried leaves; this wine takes a spin to the savory side of the grape variety. This wine goes against the trend and keeps all of honest in our wine evaluations. Drinks pretty well now. (Tasted: August 22, 2016, San Francisco, CA)  Wilfred Wong

A hugely successful Cabernet for Corison in this vintage, combining freshness, lift and wonderful intensity.  The flavors are ripe, juicy and intense, while at the same time filled with detail and nuances that make you keep going back to the glass.  Long finish.  Potential to age 15-plus years.   Jeannie Cho Lee, LP Guide, September-October 2015

Best Vintages - Hawk Wakawaka
The 2013 Corison Napa Valley is one of the best vintages I've ever had from @cathycorison (+ I have had all of them). It's a perfect harmony of flavor to structure, both delicious + deftly formed. Striking.   1/25/16
