Flavors of the Corison Cabernet Kronos Vineyard 2009 are wildly complex with juicy fruit flavors ranging from black cherries and plums all the way to black currants and blackberries. This wine is very concentrated but is light on its feet at the same time. Baking spice and chocolate notes complement a floral perfume of violets, lavender and rose petals in the aromas. Signature Kronos Vineyard minerality wraps the package.

Medium ruby-red. High-pitched aromas of cassis, licorice, violet and herbs, with a strong mineral component contributing to the impression of purity. A step up in density over the Napa bottling but without any sacrifice of brightness. Finishes sweet and very long, with a serious dusting of tannins and excellent breadth.
Antonio Galloni’s Vinous (VIN): 96
"The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Kronos is bigger, richer and deeper than the straight bottling. Plums, black currants, cassis, tar and pencil shavings all come to life in this utterly vivid, large-scaled Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2009 Kronos is endowed with serious intensity, yet retains a pretty classic sense of structure. Violets, roses and flowers of all sorts wrap around the poised, beautifully articulated finish. This is a dazzling showing from Cathy Corison."
