What: Corison Cabernet Sauvignon Tasting
Our first tasting of 2016 will be a special vertical tasting of Corison’s Cabernet Sauvignon from Rutherford Bench in Napa Valley. Cathy Corison is something of a legendary figure whose career spans over 35 years including a 10 year stint as a winemaker at venerable Chappellet winery on Pritchard Hill. She set up her own boutique winery in the so-called Bench land between Rutherford and St Helena in the late 1980s and has since attracted cult following and been generously praised in the wine critic circle. Because of the minute size of production (from a mere 8 hectares of land) and reputation for making age-worthy and graceful cabernet, her wines are highly prized and sought after among consumers and collectors alike.
