Tuesday, October 21, 2008 - Full red. Cassis, Rutherford dust, a little cocoa. Little oak influence. In the mouth, lighter style, tannin in excess of fruit, but otherwise balanced and tannin may resolve, fine grained. Long finish but primary at the moment. Feminine. More time.
I recall the Corison wines that I had in the early 1990's (91, 92, 94 particularly) being more impressive, dense, and complex, yet retaining the feminine style which has been a feature of Corison Cabernet. The "premium" selection (Kronos) came afterwards, and I wonder if the quality of the regular bottling is being affected accordingly.
