Cathy Corison's 1989 Cabernet Sauvignon is drinking beautifully from magnum right now, with a very pure bouquet of black raspberry, dusty coco-like soil tones and an attractive framing of new oak and cedar. On the palate the wine is juicy, open-knit and supremely drinkable: the tannins have largely melted away, but everything remains vibrant and lively. Supremely drinkable wine.
Consistant with previous bottle and notes. Perhaps slightly less underpinning to support the wine, but still quite lovely and enjoyable. We drank this with a prime rib dinner alongside 1986 Mouton Rothschild and the Corison stood its ground proudly (however, two vastly different approaches)!
What a lovely surprise! Pop decant and pour. Lots of fruit up front but elegant and feminine. Lively and no tiredness. Medium red with no obvious bricking. Medium legs. Initially dark fruits like plum, blackberry and dark cherry. Later red berries and hints of apple balanced by a well integrated tartness from the acid. This wine tastes like a well aged burgundy or barbaresco. A nice touch of oak, mild mushroom and leather. Very enjoyable.
