CORISON Cabernet Franc, Sunbasket Vineyard 'Helios' 2014

The 2014 ‘Helois’ Sunbasket Vineyard Cabernet Franc is an fantastic effort from Cathy Corison. It begins with inviting aromatics of blackberries and blueberries woven together with sweet spices, bell pepper, tobacco, smoldering ash and graphite, which all soar from the glass. Balanced and nicely structured, showing excellent poise, this possesses a medium-plus body with a lovely polished texture and beautifully concentrated flavors of blackberries, sweet spices, graphite and a touch of mocha which persist through the finish. Overall, this is a wonderful Cabernet Franc which is showing extremely well now and has the potential to further evolve with some additional bottle age. (Best 2017-2025) - August, 2017 (JD)
