2010 Corison Cabernet Sauvignon
Rainfall returned after three years of drought, pushing bud break, flowering and fruit-set back by at least two weeks at the beginning of the growing season. The summer brought cooler than normal temperatures so the lag continued into the ripening season. A two-day heat spike toward the end of August caused some sunburn, which required very selective picking. The cool growing season continued until a lovely Indian Summer set in in late September and October bringing the grapes to full ripeness. The long, cool season and small crop yielded a wine of uncommon concentration. Dark, brooding flavors of berries and cassis dance with dusty minerality, baking spices and violet perfume!
