2001 Corison Kronos Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Description

(From 2009 Vintage) Fresh Aromas of blackberry, current and raspberry are pure and focused, presented on a beam of flavors. Firms and retains its fruity profile even as a touch of crushed rock folds in on the finish.

Winemaker's Notes

Good full ruby. Brooding aromas of black raspberry, minerals, violet and bitter chocolate. Sweeter, denser and fatter than the 2003 and 2002 Napa bottlings, with claret-like notes of leather, smoke, cedar and graphite. Here the acids are more obviously integrated, but there's still a bit of tarry oak to be absorbed. Finishes with lovely length and lingering sweetness.

    (From 2003 Vintage) Richness, elegance, power and grace all come together in this remarkable wine, and, from its first layered scents of currants, cocoa, wildflowers and sandalwood spice, it leaves little doubt that something special is afoot. It is big and expressive but never less than perfectly balanced, and its exceptionally fine and long-lasting flavors show great range and depth. It will be around for years if properly cellared, but the temptations for drinking it in the next few years are considerable.
