    December 27, 2019 - 4 hour decant- not nearly as good as when tasted at the winery. Perhaps a slightly off bottle but nonetheless still a delight to drink. Compared to the 1997 Kronos that I drank last week, the 1997 was far superior. Hopefully my remaining 89’s are better. This is in its prime but no rush to drink.

    May 5, 2018 - Flavors of a spiced mulled wine with plenty of cinnamon, cloves, orange, and vanilla. Delicious and complex. $400 at winery.

    May 13, 2015 - 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.

    February 19, 2015 - Tasted out of magnum with Cathy Corison presiding as part of a panel tasting. From a "tough" year, this is gorgeous. Nice note of sage, great balance in the structure, smooth texture.
