Winemaker's Notes:

This complex wine offers aromas of black currant, plum, chocolate, and spice. The oak aging provides a subtle and alluring combination of smokiness and vanillin characters that follow through into the palate. This luscious wine finishes smooth and supple with velvety tannins. Enjoy with barbequed meats and hearty pasta dishes.
My Notes:

About Canyon Road:

Canyon Road Winery owns 140 acres of vineyards. The majority of the grapes for its wines are sourced from coastal appellations and selected Northern California vineyards. The California appellation is part of the key to the brand's success, since it allows winemakers to roam prime California sources for just the juice they want.

Associate Winemaker Christopher Munsell and Assistant Winemaker Ondine Chattan are the young, dynamic winemaking duo at the head of Canyon Road who are passionate about one thing: making high-quality wines a part of Americans' everyday dining experience. The winemakers work closely with local growers to assure quality fruit, vinify the lots of grapes separately, and then blend the lots before aging (as opposed to aging each lot and then blending.) This technique—and the expertise used to balance the characteristics of each lot against others—creates smooth, well-integrated wines of complexity and depth.
