Expert Reviews

95 Points | Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine
91 Points | International Wine Cellar , June 2012

Bright, full ruby-red.  Deep aromas of ripe plum, chocolate and fresh tobacco, with hints of menthol and sweet butter; smells very Old World.  Round, lush and sweet for a Corison cabernet, with heady inner-mouth perfume of cassis and flowers.  Builds nicely on the back end, which displays fine tannins but not quite the tension or grip of the '05.  Still a touch of acidity to be absorbed--in fact, this wine lost some freshness with extended time in the glass and became a bit more disjointed.  Probably best consumed in the next five years or so.

Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
