    Blend: 70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc

    Critical Acclaim:

    Shows coffee, light toasty oak and milk chocolate. Full-bodied, with layered tannins and a woody, ripe fruit aftertaste. Rich, chewy and very powerful. Impressive. Gets better and better. Best after 2014. 4,200 cases made.

    Freshness and richness combine in this wine. There’s a eucalyptus freshness that goes with the intense acidity. But alongside this is the dark, dense blackberry fruit that layers with the hints of wood. Keep this for six years before tasting, and then for many more.

    With a saturated deep ruby color, but less intense than some other St.-Emilions, this is probably the best Canon in a number of years. It is still made in a relatively austere, tannic style, but strong black cherry and loamy soil notes intermixed with some licorice and background subtle oak lead to a rich, elegant, stylish effort that is closed and in need of cellaring. Give this wine, which clearly reveals the minerality of this top-notch vineyard, at least 7-8 years of bottle age and drink it over the following 20-25 years. 90+

    The Wine Advocate

    Full ruby-red. Sexy, high-toned nose shows a very sweet maraschino cherry quality. Then juicy and energetic, with a vinosity that almost comes as a shock following the nose. The subtle flavors of currant, graphite and minerals linger nicely.
