Founded in 2006 by a dynamic team of wine industry veterans who were determined to rock the wine world. The vision was to make the best California Cabernet. The beloved flavors of Cannonball are sourced from select regions throughout California. The diverse California microclimates, topography and soils provide the perfect palette to create wines that are complex and highly consistent.
The color is a luminous, lightly golden straw derived both from the grapes themselves and the toffee toast of the oak in which the wine was fermented. Aromas of nuanced oak, baked sourdough pie crust, toasted bread, caramel, and peeled Granny Smith apples emerge from the glass and lead to a palate that enters full-bodied and toasty with notes of roasted almond and lemongrass tea. Luscious honeycomb and sweet butter creaminess deliver a satin-like palate presence that is moderated by a fresh mineral acidity on the finish.
Apple pie, honey oats cereal, lemon blossom, and fresh toast flow beautifully from this golden-hued Chardonnay. A burst of tartness keeps the palate quite mineral-driven and refined and leads to a long toasty finish that recalls brown butter and roasted chestnuts. Excellent & Highly Recommended; Rating: 91 Points; Ultimate Wine Challenge
