Kronos Vineyard Cabernets are unique for their intensity of dark, brooding plum, cassis and blackberry fruit, floral notes on the nose and a wonderful broad, silky feel in the mouth. The 1997 vintage is a precious jewel in a string of great vintages from the 1990’s. A warm, early spring was followed by a moderate, even summer allowing the fruit to reach optimal maturity slowly. The 1997 has delightfully layered earthy, chocolate, anise, coffee and tar notes to complement its juicy fruit flavors for a remarkably complex wine.
~ Cathy Corison
Medium-dark ruby; attractive, intense, complex, spicy, cedary, ripe currant, blackberry, and cassis aroma with a note of black pepper; full body; big, rich, concentrated, dense, cedary, ripe currant and black cherry fruit flavors with hints of tar and coffee; medium-full tannin... lingering aftertaste.
Very highly recommended.
