2015 Corison Cabernet Sauvignon Kronos Vineyard Napa Valley

2015 Corison Cabernet Sauvignon Kronos Vineyard Napa Valley

The 2015 vintage was Cathy Corison’s twentieth from her estate Kronos Vineyard, so it was a natural choice to celebrate our twentieth wedding anniversary. The fruit comes from the gnarled old vines surrounding the winery on Highway 29 in St. Helena.

He said: It’s silken. I said: It smells like black raspberries and wisdom.

Also: red currant, cherry, a whiff of wintergreen. The texture is like finest satin, the tannins fine-grained, while scintillant acidity shines through the finish. The flavors darken into black cherry and cassis, with hint of woodsy sous bois as the wine fades away.

A beautiful balance between light and dark, levity and seriousness — perfect for a celebration of marriage.

13.2% ABV | $195 on release (sample)

Disclosure: I consider Cathy and her husband, William Martin, to be friends, so it’s impossible for me to be impartial about her wines.
