Corison Kronos Vyd 2006

Member Review by aronowm2:

definitely not as impressive as the Corison Kronos. This is more like a Pinot. The wife says it's tangy and too young and it tries to hard to be great, but it's just good. I think it may age well but there just isn't enough backbone for long term cellaring.

Bright ruby-red. Boysenberry, dark chocolate and violet aromas, with hints of leather and game. Juicy and moderately dense, with sweet dark berry flavors joined by a leathery nuance. In an elegant, restrained style. Finishes with firm, dusty tannins and good persistence. Cathy Corison's wines are typically just under 14% alcohol, with pHs in the moderate 3.55 to 3.6 range. "That's why they age so well," she noted. "It's a failure in the vineyard if I have to wait until the sugars get too high for the flavors to get ripe. The longevity of my wines is due to acidity. Young cabernets with pruney flavors have no place to go." Corison also noted that lower pHs make SO2 additions more effective and help to control brettanomyces. A bit of a letdown after the great 2005, but still a pretty good wine, elegant and sophisticated in the Napa style. The tannins are soft and melted, and the flavors offer immediate rewards of blackberries, cherries, currants, cassis, anise and smoky oak. Will develop bottle nuances over the next eight years. - S.H. This was a difficult wine to fully analyze. It exhibits plenty of good things, such as a dark ruby/purple color and black fruit, graphite, earth, and wood spice characteristics. A wine of elegance, restraint, and flawless winemaking, it remained somewhat muted and monolithic no matter how much aeration and coaxing I gave it. Perhaps the tannins of the 2006 vintage are keeping it in a more closed down state at present. It has 15 or more years of aging potential.
