Cannon Red 2021
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 hints of rosemary, tart cherry and balsamic, the palate is full, with fig, sour cherry and hazelnut, and the finish has the perfect combination of a fruity body and soft tannins.
