Winestyr Review

Colcanyon continues to impress with their intense, sophisticated, unique, and unrelenting tiny-production wines. Well-balanced and complex with great acid and well-integrated oak, this particular one possesses black currant, cherry, spicebox, and intense, concentrated fruit. It is a terrific choice for connoisseurs looking to try something new. 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc. 35 cases produced.

What We Love

  • Extremely limited production
  • Unique in all the right ways
  • Powerful yet highly sophisticated

If you're willing to part with it, serve this wine to your friend who thinks they everything about wine.

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!
