2015 Corison Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
The best part of being a wine blogger is the discovery of all types of wines from all over the world. Many of these wines are from small, boutique wineries and many are mass-produced, with appeal to everyone who loves wine. The best part of the 2015 Corison Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is that it is such a special wine that anyone can purchase, share and enjoy. This is an incredible wine from a Napa Valley icon. I had the pleasure of tasting Cathy's wine back in 2011 or 2012 and fell instantly in love. And again, several years later, this wine and I connected and the romance blossomed once more. Not yet released (coming soon), I was honored to sample this medium-to-dark red wine with aromas of black raspberry, rose petal, cigar wrapper, vanilla and plum. Swirling this young wine really opens up the flavor profile and layers of plum, blackberry pipe smoke, spice cake and dark chocolate shavings are incredibly blended and memorable. If there is one thing you can guarantee from Cathy Corison, it is consistency and unparalleled quality in Napa Valley Cabernet. While many wines are commonly enjoyed with great foods, I prefer to enjoy this one independent of any food to completely appreciate and enjoy the complexity and flavor that is in the craft! The 2015 Napa Valley vintage was all over the board, but as expected, Corison comes out on top again. Cheers!
