2003 Corison Cabernet Sauvignon

Community Tasting Note


94 Points

Sunday, February 12, 2012 - Decanted about an hour. Deep, saturated ruby color. Cassis, cherry, licorice, worn leather, cocoa, dried herbs, smoke, tobacco, and just a bit of cedar on the slightly reserved nose. Medium body with fairly solid but ripe tannins and very nice acidity. Much more expressive on the palate than on the nose, everything seems to be turned up a notch, with the rich and spicy fruit leading the way. Nice dried herbs are in the background with a bit of dark chocolate coming in on the backend. Long finish with the dried herbs and dark chocolate seeming to last forever. I think the nose will open up with another year or two in the cellar. Very nice now, probably even better in a year or two.
