    Description

    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate : Tasted at the Château Canon vertical, the 2010 Canon has developed a certain opulence in the nose since I last tasted it. A blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc, there is a surfeit of blackberry and blueberry fruit, a background scents of warm gravel and pressed flowers that emerge with aeration.

    The palate is medium-bodied with a succulent core of sweet mulberry and dark plum fruit, surprisingly saline in the mouth, very well balanced with the Cabernet Franc stealing the steering wheel from the Merlot on the finish that fans out beautifully. As I mentioned in my previous note, I feel that this will shut down for several years, but it will ultimately deliver an impressive Château Canon, albeit one with a rockin' 15% alcohol. Tasted October 2015.
