External Reviews for Chateau Ste Michelle "Cabernet Sauvignon Canoe Ridge Estate" Columbia Valley
■Grapes were sorted with a new grape receiving system and MOG (materials other than grapes) separation system that gets fruit to the fermenters in a much more gentle and pure fashion, allowing for better varietal expression and softer mouthfeel. ■Ripe grapes were destemmed and inoculated with various strains of yeast to maximize complexity. ■Daily gentle pumpovers were used to extract optimal ﬂ avor and color and minimize harsh tannins. The pumpovers can vary by block, tank and day of fermentation. Every ferment is tasted every day to evaluate the evolution of the tannins, modify extraction techniques and ﬁ nd the right moment to drain the wine off of its skins. ■Aged for 22 months in 78% new French oak and 14% new American oak, but we choose more delicate, spicy barrels such as Boutes, Ermitage and Seguin Moreau.
The Canoe Ridge Estate Cab is a beautifully balanced wine that offers a classic, fresh expression of Horse Heaven Hills fruit. The wine shows varietal black olive notes with ripe cherry ﬂ avors and soft tannins. It is my go to wine that can handle any food.
