"Cathy Corison was the first woman winemaker in the Napa Valley to own her own winery. She’s usually one of the earliest to pick, and her wines are known for their understated elegance. The wine comes from a vineyard (now owned by Corison) which the great winemaker André Tchelistcheff used to call a 'sunbasket'. The Cabernet is silky and exquisitely pure-tasting, with lively flavors evocative of fresh-chilled cherries and exotic spices. Wonderful structure and delineation, and very long."

"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Sunbasket Vineyard is a new wine that emerges from a St. Helena vineyard that has long been a component in the Napa Valley Cabernet. Dark red cherry, plum, mint, rose petal and licorice give the 2014 its explosive, racy personality. Exuberant and racy, in style, the 2014 is a truly glorious wine that manages to be ripe and also retain notable freshness. This is a fabulous showing." 

John Gilman, 95 Points 

"The inaugural release of Corison Cabernet Sauvignon from the Sunbasket Vineyard is outstanding. The bouquet is pure, nascently complex and utterly classic, wafting from the glass in a youthful blend of black cherries, a touch of mulberry, Cuban cigar wrapper, Rutherford dust, lovely soil tones and a discreet framing of spicy new wood. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and utterly refined in profile, with a lovely core of fruit, excellent nascent soil signature, fine-grained tannins and outstanding focus and grip on the very long, perfectly balanced and nascently complex finish. This is a tad less powerful in personality than Cathy’s old vine Kronos Vineyard bottling, but it may well be every bit as good in a different, more understated style. A stunning new addition to the Corison Winery lineup!"
