Fresh with gnarly blackcurrant fruit. Lovely acidity and balance. Meatiness. Still fresh and punchy. Wow

Limestone, crushed dry rocks, leather, light, fresh tobacco with ash, dark rich earth, stones, anise, herbaceous, steeped fruit teas with amazing, candied, bright red, dark, blue florals with violets.

The body is medium full and lush. Beautiful; structure, tension, length and balance. Sound round, meaty and chewy, tarry, sweet tannins.

This is so lush and yummy. I’d like a touch more acid but it’s still a baby so could be hiding in all that jammy fruit.

The 2010 Canon is classy with an elegance to it. Mid weight, reddish profile, nice grip through the finish. Years ahead of it.

Dense and pure and purple. Amazing color for a 70 year old wine. Slightly medicinal note hovers above dark fruit with real purity and persistence. Wonderful.
