2003 Corison Cabernet Sauvignon
The delicious 2003 Corison Cabernet was released in September 2006. Picking in 2003 was a challenge, but luckily I had my last picking scheduled just as the long, wicked late September heat spike hit. The fruit got to the winery in excellent shape and without the sugars going through the roof. The otherwise even ripening season from veraisonthrough the middle of September delivered complex flavors and inky color.
The resulting wine is packed with luscious Bing cherry and plum chutney fruit and rendered rich and complex with undertones of cocoa, nutmeg, white pepper and “Rutherford dust “. Trademark floral high notes are already beginning to develop in the bottle. Lush with gentle, mouth-coating tannins, it gracefully walks the line between power and elegance, perfectly balanced for a long, distinguished life.
