2008 Corison Kronos Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
2008 saw a second year of drought and a heat spike during flowering which kept the crop very small. Early budbreak got the ball rolling in the spring but an unusually cool summer followed giving us the long, even ripening we hope for.
This wine exhibits a wonderful yin and yang of juicy approachability and firm, classic structure. The cool ripening season resulted in a vast range of fruit flavors, all the way from bright black cherry and blueberry through plums and cassis to blackberries and boysenberries. Hints of chocolate peek around the corner and spicy notes of anise, nutmeg and cardamom add to a lovely perfume of dried roses for astonishing complexity. The signature round, silky Kronos mouth feel completes the package.
