There’s the saying, now here’s the sip…
I chose this wine to go with that saying because there is magic inside this bottle longing to reveal itself … and, it’s nice to believe in a little magic and delicious hidden secrets.
Some may say Cathy Corison’s wines are delicious hidden secrets, but I’m not so sure it’s such a secret anymore. Her popularity has increased as many wine drinkers are beginning to appreciate her old-world style and restrained approach to winemaking.
Cathy Corison’s 2013 Kronos Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon is ethereal.
It’s a beautiful taste now, but this wine needs time to develop to its full potential.
There is a depth of concentration here, with scents of red, black and blueberries; red currant, dusty rose, violets, and eucalyptus. Although this is a full-bodied wine, it doesn’t feel heavy; the acidity is uplifting, and one sip leaves you wanting more. It has lovely texture and solid structure. This is still a very young wine, and I’m waiting and watching for that magic to show itself in years to come. =)
I’ve been a member and fan of Corison wines for many years, and due to the small amount of wine produced from Kronos’ old, gnarled Cabernet vines, I believe you may only purchase this via her club membership. (sorry about that, I didn’t realize this until after I finished writing. It’s possible that you may find it on winesearcher.com)
This wine is a splurge, but like many fine wines of value, you can lay this down for 20+ years.
I hope you have a great weekend and watch for those special hidden secrets and find the magic in your days. ❤️
