Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
Last Tasted 3/92 An opaque, deep ruby/garnet color had the look of extraordinary concentration and density. The nose offered up compelling aromas of herbs, black cherries, and loamy, earthy notes, as well as coffee. In the mouth, this Canon exhibited a typically rustic, super-concentrated, hard, tannic, massive constitution. It is still capable of improvement - as hard as that may be to believe. The color reveals no signs of age, and there is enough tannin to suggest that this wine could last for at least another 15-20 years.
