Chateau Canon Canon Fronsac, 1990

I am generally not a fan of Merlot, but that hasn't kept me from buying and enjoying the Merlot-rich wines such as this one from the satellite appellations of Bordeaux. I enjoyed several vintages of Chateau Canon (from Canon Fronsac) during the 1980s and 1990s, and this 1990 is drinking beautifully in its maturity.

The color has turned from ruby to garnet and is a bit murky at this stage. Scents of ripe cherries, menthol, and flowers. Very friendly on the palate. Cool fruit impressions. A classic claret.
