Colcanyon Estate Wines Description

Established in 2001, Colcanyon Estate Wines were amongst the early entrants in the up and coming Santa Monica Mountain wineries. Producing Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. 
 
We enjoy a rocky topsoil and a 45 degree south facing slope - the end result are vines that are optimally positioned for even sun exposure throughout the growing period. The yard benefits from early morning mists that rise up the canyon from the Pacific Ocean immediately below - nature's irrigation system that means we add little additional irrigation even in the hottest of summers.
 
We farm just two acres and with 1000 vines that puts us firmly in the boutique vineyard category. Our size also means that we can give the vines a lot of attention and closely adjust the variables that drive good fruit quality.
 
Our planting blocks are 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc.  
Located 2000 feet above Malibu, the vineyard is situated on a south-facing slope with uninterupted views of the Pacific Ocean. Cool morning mists that rise from the Pacific are replaced by warmth from the afternoon sun and create a setting that is perfect for growing robust red grapes.

Worth getting a case - Great wines
Wine Spectator, Santa Barbera
Great wines emerging from this newly commercialized Malibu vineyard. They are gaining significant award recognition and the wines show why. They don't open to the public but you can source product from several local outlets including Cornell Winery and Tasting Room.
