Canon 1983

Chateau Canon

34 years

The 1983 Canon has reached full maturity. The wine's dark garnet/ruby color reveals some rust/amber at the edge. The nose is forthcoming, with scents of leather, earth, spice, sweet plums and fruitcake. In the mouth, the wine possesses good richness, heady, alcoholic clout, low acidity, and rustic tannin in the finish. This wine has matured quickly, but should hold (if stored in a cool cellar) for another 10-12 years. Last tasted 12/97
