2007 was one of those vintages that makes winemaking look easy. The weather was ideal at flowering, yielding a good-sized crop. Perfect, even ripening weather prevailed all season with nary a heat spike in August and September.

The 2007 is one of my favorite Kronos Cabernets to date. Spicy aromas integrate with dark, brooding black cherry, boysenberry and cassis fruit. I love the prominent mineral note in the aromas and the signature viscosity and velvety tannins make it lush. All this at moderate alcohol!

Connoiseurs' Guide to California Wine, December 2011
CORISON Kronos Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2007 $98.00
91 points:  Very much adhering to the Corison style of mannerly and well-focused wines of precision, the 2007 Kronos trades muscle for grace but sacrifices little in the way richness or depth. It is not wildly tannic but is nonetheless structured for keeping, and, if always accessible and fairly light on its feet, it will continue to grow and find a little more nuance and more polish yet as the years come and go.

California Grapevine, October-November, 2011
"2007 Corison, "Kronos Vineyard," Napa Valley ($98) - Medium-dark ruby color; attractive, forward, intense, cassis and black cherry fruit aroma with a slight dusty note and hints of espresso and milk chocolate; medium-full to full body; forward, rich, textured, herbal, spicy, dark cherry and berry fruit flavors with firm acidity...  Very highly recommended..."
