90 points " 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Kronos Vineyard Elegant and complex, the 2000 Corison Kronos Vineyard Cabernet is lovely. The mild, even summer weather allowed slow, steady ripening, promoting mature, juicy flavors at relatively low sugars. Extensive crop thinning at veraison provided even ripening. The grapes hung on the vines for fully two weeks longer than in a typical season! Small clusters and tiny berries yielded a wine with inky color and classic structure. Miserly at just over one ton per acre, the Kronos Vineyard proved itself in 2000; great vineyards make great wine. Mouthwatering, multilayered aromas include plums and black cherries. Spice and vanilla from the French oak barrels combine with boysenberry jam flavors to give us the whole pie! Complexing notes include cedar, mocha, whiffs of peppermint and hints of green olives. The tannins are soft and mouth-coating and the palate is broad but firm, with a long finish. 2002 Corazón Gewürztraminer Anderson Valley Each year I produce a small lot of Gewurztraminer from a 30-year-old vineyard in the Anderson Valley, which is clearly the best area in California for the variety. Inspired by Alsatian wines the Corazon Gewurztraminer is fermented to dryness. Made this way, Gewurztraminer cries out for food. Very aromatic, the mouthfilling flavors of pear, lychee nut, rose petal and grapefruit are balanced by snappy acidity. Corazón is derived from the ancestral form of my family name and means "heart" in Spanish. 2002 was a very ripe vintage producing a wonderful richness as a foil to the nearly dry finish. "The 2002 Corazón Gewürztraminer is rounde 2000 Corison Cabernet Sauvignon Delicious and approachable already. Supple and harmonious, with a sense of understatement. Spicy currant, black cherry and plummy notes, that are well-balanced and rich. Fine-grained tannins make it easy to enjoy now. Drink now through 2010. (tasting note summer 2004) 90 Points. Supple and harmonious, it wins points for its sense of understatement, with spicy currant, black cherry and plum notes that are well-balanced and rich without being too powerful. Fine-grained tannins make it easy to enjoy now. The Wine Spectator 10/31/03 "
