    October 7, 2022 - Funky tart fruit, short tannic finish ..stop trying to make this thing into a wine it is not.
    Should rate it lower but the funky is slightly interesting .
    Doesn’t matter when you drink this mess, the tartness is not curable.

    April 26, 2022 - Not many 13.6% abv wines being made in napa these days. The style is apparent immediately. Red fruited and tart and tangy and still carrying a bit of acid. But it's got enough body and flavor to carry it. This isn't the kronos vineyard but still westside benchlands vineyards which aren't that far away. Raspberry and more raspberry and some olive and forest floor. Probably a drink now but not on its last legs.

    March 6, 2022 - This Corison has aged very nicely and is ready to drink. The tannins have evolved and are quite soft making this smooth in the mouth and finish. Sedate and well-structured with a mild earthy fruit profile which is pleasant and not overpowering. Drink now to early 2024.

    November 25, 2021 - Still (too) heavy on the menthol/evergreen/eucalyptus.... Had hoped after this much time in the bottle those notes would have receded allowing something more interesting to come through. Guess this wine is just not my thing.

    June 13, 2021 - I love the nose - blackberries and wildflowers. Cherries, black olive, cocoa, and softening tannins. A beauty and should be excellent with our Wagyu ribeyes.
