2006 Kronos Cabernet 1.5L
Budbreak came very late in 2006 due to cold, rainy weather that continued well into spring. By early June, the sun finally came out and the vines began to bloom and set fruit. Even, cool weather from August through a very late harvest for a nearly perfect ripening season. Layered aromas of ripe blackberries, black cherries, plum compote, cassis and cedar are made even more complex by chocolate, nutmeg, and peppermint notes. The juicy fruit aromas follow through in the flavors. The texture is velvet. Classic.

Bright medium red-ruby. Richer on the nose than the Napa Valley example, offering raspberry, chocolate, mocha and leather aromas, with good lift from floral and mineral elements. Fuller and sweeter in the middle but at the same time more perfumed, with redder fruit flavors complemented by game and leather. Almost viscous for a Corison wine but not at all alcoholic. Finishes quite long, with a serious dusting of tannins and very good lift. This will take longer to come around than the basic Napa bottling, which Corison refers to as "the Corison cabernet." 91 Points.
