Wine & Spirits Review
Black as ink, with black-cherry scents, this has a whiff of clove and violet that gives the wine some initial lift. But mostly, it's dark and brooding, like plums modestly spiced with anise. A big, heavy wine with pitch-dark tannins, this needs cellar time, then double-decant it for steak.
Canoe Ridge Estate Cabernet expresses the uniqueness of terroir, year in and year out. The vintage, which was quite warm and early, intensified these qualities. Classic Horse Heaven Hills fruit flavors of cherries are expressed as ripe/dark cherries. Canoe Ridge's elegant tannins are still fine and powdery, but with an added level of extract and density. A beautiful expression of Canoe Cabernet in a wonderfully warm and balanced vintage. Enjoy with everything.
