2008 Corison 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 .
The wines are classic. Juicy and forward, the 2008 reminds me of the 2004. It has evolved quickly in the bottle with fruit flavors favoring the plum, cassis and blackberry end of the spectrum. Notes of cocoa and spice add richness. The feel
in the mouth is silky and supple.
