Corison – Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 – Kronos Vineyard – Napa Valley

The nose is fruity, fresh and offers concentration. It reveals notes of cassis, crushed boysenberry and small notes of crushed raspberry combined with fine hints of liquorice, tobacco as well as an imperceptible touch of Cuben pepper. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, elegant, silky and offers a good juiciness, an acid frame, a very slight richness (in the background), a good freshness as well as finesse. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, juicy cassis and small notes of liquorice / Zan associated with discreet touches of dark chocolate / tonka bean as well as subtle hints of racy minerality. Tannins are fine and very slightly chewy. There are slight hints of dark chocolate on the persistence.
