The December issue of Sunset has an article titled "Well-crafted Cabs". Since it's the current issue, the article is not up on their web site, yet. To abide by fair use, I'll just quote the opening sentence:
In The Race of the last decade for higher and higher scores from key wine critics - and for more of our dollars for the most popular red in this country - some top Cabernet Sauvignon makers went off the deep end.
The article also notes that Robert Parker has "handed off the baton for tasting California wines." As a result the author (Sara Schneider) is "seeing more bottles showing some restraint."
Corison is described as "From a wine maker who never strayed from elegant restraint."
