Intense aromas of ripe cherry and allspice, hints of earth and cedar. A rush of red fruit floods the palate, with concentrated lingering flavors. This wine has a full, round texture with a clean persistent finish. Will develop more complexity and character with a little cellaring.

Tamayo has found a common winegrowing philosophy that is often expressed as "The Chateaux Model." One estate, one exceptional wine. Their focus on crafting a singularly unique expression of "Terroir" or "Place" is exemplified in their flagship estate grown red, CANA. In addition to producing CANA wines from their Contra Costa estate, they offer a variety of other varietal bottlings from the best appellations in California. These appellation specific wines feature varietals that accurately reflect their unique origins.
