Canon del Sol Red Table Wine Columbia Valley 2005

Syrah is predominant on the nose with a light smokiness, some gamey notes, and spice. A very smooth taste with a touch of vanilla and spice. Syrah also stands out on the taste with Malbec adding spice at the backend. Ever so slightly heavier on the oak on the taste than I care for. Still, overall a very enjoyable wine. Blend of Syrah, Cabernet, Merlot, Malbec.

  1. Sean,

    Glad you got to taste Anelare wine and thanks for the review. We just released our 2006 vintages, with the Cab. Sauv. and Syrah available to wine club members only, however we did also release a Syrah based blend that has been very popular that is available to the public.

    In December of 2008 we are excited to announce we will open a wine tasting studio off highways 395 in South Kennewick open to the public and available for private business or personal functions to our wine club members.

    If you are in the area please call (509) 588-6171 to set up a private sit down tasting.
