Full body with silky tannins and a wonderful intensity and super polished tannins with a long long finish. Super refined. Best Canon in years. Try in 2016.

Hugely dense foursquare wine with great fruit and the purest tannins. Chocolate and coffee predominate at the same time as sweet tannins and acidity. A wine that combines charm with great power.

Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. Two bottles were tasted in different flights, the first seeming to be just a little more monotonous than I would have liked, however the second was far more attractive. It has a beautiful nose with lifted blackcurrant and bilberry fruit laced with minerals and cedar. The oak is quite noticeable but in synch with the fruit. The palate is silky and smooth on the entry. It is fleshy in the mouth, but belying the firm structure underneath. Perhaps it would benefit from more tension towards the finish but that is a minor quibble. Charming as ever.

The finest Canon since the 1982 the 2009 (75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc) reveals a dense blue/purple color along with a classic nose of chalk dust blueberries black raspberries black currants and a touch of wood smoke. Medium to full-bodied elegant and loaded with an inner framework of minerality and moderately high tannins this backward but stylish concentrated Canon will benefit from 7-8 years of cellaring and last for three decades.

This is a creamy lush hedonist's wine with suave textured layers of fig sauce puréed plum and cassis woven with hints of mocha and pain d'épices. Picks up grip though joined by a roasted mesquite hint on the finish for added length. Best from 2014 through 2025. 4415 cases made. -JM

Then thick sweet and very ripe on the palate but a bit youthfully restrained. This full-bodied Canon could use a bit more lift but maintains very good focus. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins and excellent length.

Shy at first aromatic complexity and interest appear with aeration as scents of dark spice and black cherry contribute to the bouquet. The moderately weighted palate is balanced in shape along with blackberry flavors that are a touch ripe at the core. Soft dark spices lightly textured tannins and hints of fresh earth add complexity to the lengthy finish. A balanced elegant statement that should be drunk by 2030.
