Corison – Cabernet Sauvignon 1999 – Napa Valley

Corison – Cabernet Sauvignon 1999 – Napa Valley

The nose is fruity, fresh and relatively gourmand. The wine need to be aerated in the glass or to be served in carafe. It reveals notes of ripe cassis, very ripe red fruits and mushroom associated with fine notes of underbrush, cassis cream as well as fine touches of licorice and a slight touch of mocha. The palate is fruity, nicely built and offers an acid frame, a nice freshness, a nice juiciness, roundness, a good volume and a beautiful elegance. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry jam, cassis, touches of plum and hints of prune associated with fine notes of red fruits (raspberry, cherry), fine touches of liquorice, undergrowth (discreet) as well as hints of sweet spices and tobacco. Good length and persistence with notes of black fruits, dried fruits as well as slight notes of cola / zan and spices (cardamom, mocha).
