Cabernet Sauvignon, ‘Kronos’, Corison
A cold, rainy March set the stage for a nearly perfect growing season in 2012, allowing Corison to dry-farm the Kronos Vineyard. The ripening season followed with moderate highs, all the way through to picking at the end of September. Coupled with cold nights, the season yielded ripe, juicy fruit with uncommon natural acidity.
Bright blueberry notes join the dominant black fruit flavors of black cherry, black raspberry, plum and cassis in a layered display that carries through into a seemingly endless finish. Pretty violet perfume, minerality and spice complete the package. The tannins feel like velvet. This is one for the ages.
