Community Tasting History

Community Tasting Notes (average 91 pts. and median of 91 pts. in 4 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by OBrien on 12/23/2013: sadly past its prime (971 views)
 Tasted by cmaldoon on 10/21/2012 & rated 88 points: From Cathy's first year of her own label. This bottle was the most mild bottle of the night. It was accessible but subtle. There were many spice notes and good complexities but it was not good with foods because it was easily overpowered (1640 views)
 Tasted by TimothyB on 6/4/2011: We were too eager and pop-and-poured, in spite of it's age, this wine really needed some time in the decanter (2170 views)
 Tasted by LightFoot on 12/19/2010 & rated 94 points: Tasted this blind against another cabernet, also tasted blind. I guessed the latter to be an '88 Oakville cab, and it was unveiled to be the '87 Sequoia Grove Estate (Oaklville). The Corison smelled and tasted like a really well-evolved and maintained '94, if not younger. Striking floral-cassis-vanilla perfume, silky palate. Not having been a fan of the Corisons lately (post 1994) I'm now thinking I should open those '99's I've been avoiding. (2273 views)

California Wines (Wine Institute of California)

California is one of the most diverse wine regions in the world, with almost 100 grape varieties grown in over 100 viticultural areas, including dozens of ­different microclimates and soil types, as well as a very individualistic set of ­winemakers, many with international experience, which adds to and deepens that diversity.
