Wine SpectatorOffers vibrant violet, blackberry paste and plum coulis flavors, with polished, integrated toast and an enticing anise note. The chalky spine is nicely embedded through the finish. A solid effort for the vintage. Drink now through 2017. 3,500 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastThe wine is young with tight tannins over the potential of juicy black-currant fruit. It has a firm edge, with dark chocolate and spice as well as the fruitiness. Drink this wine from 2019.

Wine AdvocateAnother good Fronsac from this moderately-sized estate (40 acres) planted with 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2012 Gaby exhibits a deep blue/ruby/purple color as well as sweet aromas of blue and red fruits intermixed with notions of crushed chalk, which gives the wine a noticeable minerality. With firmness, noticeable tannins, medium body and good to very good concentration, if the tannins melt away and the fruit holds, this will be a very good to excellent effort from Canon-Fronsac. It should age well for 6-10 years.
