Chronos is the winery's Bordeaux-style blend, composed of half Cabernet Sauvignon and one-quarter each Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Sharp and peppery, it shows the tight, tart, herbal side of the grapes, amplified somewhat by the cool vintage. Berry, plum, fig and dark chocolate are the principal flavors, all in good proportion.
