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.
