Winestyr Review

Colcanyon only farms two acres on their estate vineyards located high in the mountains of Malibu. Their flagship wine is Cabernet Sauvignon and it is a knockout year after year. Big, intense, concentrated while still sophisticated, complex, and balanced, this unique expression of Cabernet Sauvignon is a powerful wine but also a terroir-driven wine all at once. Another great wine in what's becoming a long line of fantastic wines.

What We Love

  • Malibu Coast AVA
  • Micro-production
  • Full bodied and rich

Yet another beautiful Cabernet from this little known appellation.

Experience

Colcanyon produces tiny amounts of Estate grown wines from their 2 acres of vines. Their wines are unique, terroir-driven, gems from the mountains of Malibu in the newly created Malibu Coast AVA. The wines have racy acid, concentrated fruit, and are expertly crafted in lots of less than 100 cases. The accolades they've received are stunning for such a small production winery.

Winery

There is more to Malibu than celebrities and a great coastline. In fact, there is an emerging viticulture movement with more than 50 boutique vineyards. Established in 2001, Colcanyon Estate Wines was amongst the early entrants in the up-and-coming Santa Monica Mountain wineries. Until 2010 Colcanyon Estate Wines were only available for family and close friends, but now Colcanyon’s award-winning Cabernets and Merlots are available for you too!
