The 2017 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a wonderful showing from Cathy Corison. It begins with inviting aromatics of black raspberries, cassis and plum, which are woven together with cedar box, tobacco, fresh violets, licorice and underlying wet gravel nuances all developing beautifully in the glass. On the palate this possesses a medium-plus-bodied with a gorgeous supple texture, driven by a ripe core that pushes out concentrated flavors of black raspberry cordial, black plum, baking spices and tobacco. It goes on to impress with its outstanding combination of opulence and finesse all the way through the long lingering finish. This certinaly won't be a wine readers will need to wait on for long, it is absolutely stunning today, yet given the track record of Corison, there is no reason to believe this won't also age gracefully for at least a decade or two.
