Lot #592. Corison Cabernet Sauvignon Kronos Vineyard 2011

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 95 JG.
". . . I have found this cooler vintage utterly captivating at most of my favorite estates and fully expect it to be the great sleeper vintage of its era. The 2011 Kronos Vineyard bottling from Corison is a bit lower in octane than most vintages, coming in at an even thirteen percent, but the wine has a very dynamic personality on both the nose and palate and is going to be absolutely stunning with sufficient time in the cellar. The bouquet is extremely precise and nascently complex, delivering scents of black cherries, dark plums, tobacco leaf, classy soil tones, cigar ash, allspice, hints of violet and a discreet framing of cedary new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and tightly-knit, with a rock solid core of fruit, ripe, seamless tannins, excellent acidity and lovely backend soil signature on the very, very long, vibrant and complex finish. Though the 2011 Kronos is still a very young wine, it is already showing some lovely, old vine backend sappiness that is going to define this wine when it is ready to drink."
