This is another label from Cathy Corison who is known for making old school Napa Cabs and other wines. Despite the coolness of the vintage, this wine manages to not show under ripe qualities and yet be consistent with the Corison style. Ruby/purple in color. The nose has black cherries, cherries, cigar tobacco and slight dustiness. On the palate, this has a nice complexity. Drinks a bit older than it is but that is more profile than age. Dust, tobacco, dried and fresh cherries. Good balance. Food friendly. Nice finish. $53. This is a nice change of pace for Napa and easily has another decade in it though it is not likely to get better.
