A glorious old vine wine with mineral, stone, blueberry, black currant and wet earth. Full body, silky tannins and a long finish. Salty undertone, even iodine. There's an ethereal quality to this that makes you think. Released spring of 2017. 400 cases made.
Graphite, slate, lavender, cloves and crushed rocks are some of the notes that open up in Cathy Corison's 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Kronos. A deep, inky wine, the 2013 possesses unreal concentration and unctuousness, yet there is plenty of minerality underpinning the fruit. Red cherry jam, rose petal, mint and sweet spices emerge over time, but the 2013 is a wine of pure textural depth and intensity. The 2013 is a wine of unreal finesse. To be released in late winter 2017. Cathy Corison describes 2013 as an early year, but without excess heat, as her vineyards did not see a single day over 100 degrees. Cool nights helped establish color intensity, aromatics and encourage gradual physiological ripeness, all highly desirable attributes. In 2013, the Napa Valley Cabernet is a real overachiever, while the flagship Kronos is every bit as good as it can be. In keeping with the style of the year, the 2012s are more approachable, but even they need time. Corison remains a standard bearer among more classically leaning producers in Napa Valley. Her wines will appeal most to readers who like structured Cabernets. (AG)
