SKU: Cannon Red 2019

Named for our sister property in Charleston, SC, Cannon Green, this wine’s smoothness may hide the fact that it’s also complex and whimsical, earning its reputation as “an easy drinking red for a serious red drinker.” Like Cannon Green’s charming event space, it’s worthy of a special celebration, and equally fitting for a weeknight supper. The nose has a lovely fruitiness and hints of cherries, raspberries, and elderberries on the palate make for a refreshing finish with light body and tannins.

Nose:  blueberries, blackberries, leather, tobacco

Palate:  blackberries, plum, stone fruit, forest floor

Finish:  medium body, soft tannin and acidity
