Tech Sheet


Occasional Wine Note:  Another example of a Merlot at its best. This 100-point gem of wine is absolutely epic. Black cherries, blueberries, flowers, herbs, and brilliantly integrated tannins. This is Bordeaux's Right Bank showing its power and mite. This should be in every serious collector's cellar.

    Critic Score: 100

    The 2020 Canon is a blend of 68% Merlot and 32% Cabernet Franc, aging for 18 months in French oak, 50% new. It weighs in with 14.5% alcohol and a pH of 3.53. Deep garnet-purple colored, it bursts from the glass with vivacious notes of Morello cherries, redcurrant jelly, wild blueberries and black raspberries, plus hints of powdered cinnamon, clove oil, star anise and dusty red soil. The medium to full-bodied palate is an exercise in grace, delivering exquisitely ripe, finely pixilated tannins and bold freshness to support the tight-knit black, red and blue fruit layers, finishing long with loads of exotic spices and mineral sparks. An exhilarating triumph!

    Black cherries, fresh herbs, lemon rind, and violets on the nose. Crushed stone, too. Medium to full body with super fine tannins that run the length of the wine. It goes on for minutes. A great wine. Best after 2027, but already thoroughly gorgeous. A classical Canon.
