Tasting Notes

A distinctive, structured, mineral-infused, medium-bodied effort, the 2001 Canon exhibits notes of damp earth, sweet cherries, and spice, a firm structure, and very good purity. This is clearly an estate on the rebound. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2014.

Mid ruby. A bit hot and animal on the nose. Very sweet – like essence of Saint-Emilion with marked tannin and acidity.
