Corison – Kronos Vineyard – Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 – Napa Valley

The nose is fresh, aromatic and offers a nice finesse. It reveals notes of blackberry, plum and fine notes of flowers associated with touches of zan, black tea as well as slight notes of spice, a hint of wood and a hint of resin. The palate is fruity, balanced and offers a nice freshness, fat, tension, an acid frame, juiciness and a good matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, crushed raspberry and fine notes of cassis associated with touches of licorice, cigar box as well as a discreet touch of chocolate and flowers. Tannins are fine, elegant and (very) slighty firm. The finish is aromatic. Good length and persistence. On the aftertaste there are very fine hints of mocha, fruit and flowers.
