Deep in color, short on aroma but bountiful on the tongue, the 2013 Kronos vineyard Corison Cabernet Sauvignon is delightful. It starts off a little tame but opens up into a smooth mouthful of joy. Wild flowers, dark chocolate, caramel and raspberry flavors dot the tongue with an incredibly smooth mouth-feel. Tannins come to life as the bottle opens up, always balanced by the wine’s acidity. Not heavy in alcohol at only 13.4%. Drink anytime between now and 2035.

 

Wine Maker’s Notes:
“Corison Winery is a small family farm producing delicious Cabernet Sauvignons that speak of place. Over three decades, Cathy Corison and William Martin have built a special home to celebrate the best of our little corner of the world, benchland in the heart of the Napa Valley. Known for power and elegance, Corison wines are balanced to grace the table and are recognized throughout the world for their longevity and consistency.”

Note: The goal of Cork and Social’s reviews/ratings is to provide characteristics of the wine and not to sway a wine drinker from trying any wine – even those that carry lower ratings.  The ratings presented are those of the wine reviewer, thus it is THE WINE REVIEWER’S RATING – not your rating. You may have a completely different take on the wines that are reviewed.

  Cork and Social bases its ratings primarily on 5 characteristics: balance, length, intensity, complexity and expressiveness.  Cork and Social is independent in its evaluation of every wine.  Ultimately, the Cork and Social wine rating scale is the same scale used by Robert Parker whereby:

96-100 Extraordinary
90-95 Outstanding
80-89 Above Average to Excellent
70-79 Average
60-69 Below Average
< 59 Appalling

The recommended drinking window is by no means absolute.  It is based on the wine reviewer’s experience aging other, similarly structured wines.  Ultimately, it is the wine drinker’s decision when to drink their wine.  Some wines age well and others do not.  The wine reviewer is merely trying to provide some guidance to the wine drinker.
