External Reviews for Chateau Ste. Michelle Cabernet Sauvignon Canoe Ridge
The Canoe Ridge Estate Cab is a beautifully balanced wine that offers a classic, fresh expression of Horse Heaven Hills fruit. The wine offers black current flavors, hints of sage and elegant tannins.
Good dark red. Musky currant, licorice, cedar, sage and a whiff of chocolatey reduction on the nose. Fairly smooth, pliant and deep, boasting good richness to its redcurrant, herb and milk chocolate flavors. Plenty of sexy oak here but it's supported by ripe fruit. Finishes with suave, edge-free tannins and lovely lingering sweetness.
Also beautifully complex and slightly more focused, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Canoe Ridge Estate is a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance a mix of Merlot, Syrah and Malbec. Coming from vines planted in 1991 and located in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA, close to the Columbia River, it delivers notions of red and black fruits, spice box, flowers and background herbs along with a medium-bodied, richly textured mouthfeel that carries solid depth and ripe tannin. More forward and approachable than the Cold Creek Vineyard, it should drink nicely over the coming 4–5 years. Drink now–2018.
