2002 Corison Kronos Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Description

(From 2006 Vintage) On the palate is a full and luscious palate with flavors of black cherry, black currant, olive, cedar, herbs and fine pipe tobacco. All of the flavors balance beautifully.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2001 Vintage) 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.

    velvety and luscious nose, no jaminess. cherries and dark ripe fruit. Mila: acrylic paint. tannic but structured, demands rich food. juicy. anise, light spicy. Mila: dry wine not too tanic. smoky.

    (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.
