Corison Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2008

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Good medium ruby. Pure aromas of boysenberry, violet and licorice. Juicy, intense and pure, with lovely precision and verve to the flavors. A bit less broad-shouldered than the 2007 version, which boasts a more powerful structure. But theres no shortage of fruit intensity here. The berries and clusters were small in 2008, noted Cathy Corison, adding that her old vines got through the heat spells nicely and that the vintage for her is characterized by small crop levels and good concentration and acidity. ** SOLD OUT **
