Vinous - explore all things wine
  The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Kronos is a thrilling, riveting wine that captures all the vintage has to offer. A vertical spine of tannin gives the wine shape and vibrancy. Powerful and dense, with tremendous concentration, the 2016 bristles with energy. The interplay of rich fruit and classic structure makes for an absolutely compelling wine. Readers will have to be patient, starting with the fact that the 2016 won't be released until 2019 or possibly even 2020. This is a positively stunning wine from Cathy Corison.Antonio Galloni, Dec 2018

Vinous - explore all things wine
  Cathy Corison's 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Sunbasket Vineyard is just fabulous. Dense, powerful and beautifully layered in the glass, this sumptuous Cabernet fills a very nice middle spot in the Corison range, as it is quite succulent and yet also far more approachable than the Kronos. Soft, curvy contours add to a sense of immediacy and sheer allure. Open-knit and expressive, with all of the radiance that gives this site its name, the 2016 Sunbasket is outrageously delicious, even in the early going.Antonio Galloni, Dec 2018

VINOUS - explore all things wine
  The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is bold, luscious and gracious, all in the mid-weight style that is such a signature of Cathy Corison's Cabernets. Floral overtones add freshness to this super-expressive Cabernet Sauvignon. Rose petal, lavender, licorice, mint and dark cherry fruit get an extra kick of vibrancy from the natural brightness of the year. What a gorgeous wine this is.Antonio Galloni, Dec 2018

2016 Corison Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
95   The bouquet is classic, wafting from the glass in a complex and very classy blend of black cherries, sweet dark berries, Cuban cigar wrapper, Rutherford dust, a deft framing of cedary oak and just a hint of eucalyptus in the upper register. On the palate the wine is extremely pure and focused, full-bodied and beautifully bound up in its sophisticated structural chassis, with a gorgeous core of fruit, great soil signature, ripe, buried tannins and superb length and grip on the seamlessly balanced finish. This is stunning juice…John Gilman, July-August 2019, Issue

97  One of the great, contemporary interpretations of Napa cabernet, this has a stunning nose of ripe cassis and plums with delicate cocoa-powder, licorice and sage notes. Very concentrated but also super-bright and really graceful, as it glides over the palate. This has minerality that’s rare in California, adding an extra element of vitality to the very long finish. Only 13.3 percent alcohol. Drink or hold.May 3, 2019

Top US Cabernet of 2019
  This cabernet is cool enough to sustain its herbal character, even as it’s saturated with dark fruit and meaty enough to stand in the company of its Napa Valley neighbors. The herbal side comes across in notes of fennel, tumbling through the juicy, gravelly texture, bringing to mind a match with grilled fennel sausages. This is the third vintage of Sunbasket, a vineyard just north of Cathy Corison’s winery on the west of side Highway 29, where she sourced fruit for three decades before purchasing it in 2014.(10/19)
