Chateau Ste. Michelle Canoe Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon -Washington 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The Canoe Ridge Estate Cabernet delivers black cherry fruit, spicy oak, leather and sweet caramel characters. Its soft, elegant, slightly dusty finish is typical of Canoe Ridge Estate. This wine shows the more "subtle" side of Washington Cabernet. It doesnt hit you over the head, but rather gently entices you with seductive fruit and spice layers. Try this with penne pasta marinara or veal scaloppini. Those slightly "dusty Tuscan" tannins are a great match with Italian foods.

Chateau Ste. Michelle:
  You’d be hard-pressed (just like the grapes!) to find a more influential winery than Chateau Ste. Michelle.

  You’d be hard-pressed (just like the grapes!) to find a more influential winery than Chateau Ste. Michelle. It’s Washington State’s oldest winery, getting its start when Pommerelle Wine Company and the National Wine Company merged in 1954 to form the American Wine Growers. From there, they created a premium line of vinifera wines in 1967 called “Ste. Michelle Vintners,” under the direction of Andre Tchelistcheff, which is where Ste. Michelle really took off. Their first vines were planted at the now-legendary Cold Creek Vineyard in Eastern Washington in 1972. When a French style chateau was built in Woodinville by Ste. Michelle Vintners in 1976, the winery finally became known as Chateau Ste. Michelle. The terroir is very important for Chateau Ste. Michelle. Columbia Valley isn’t just important because they have over 3,500 acres under vine there - they love the land, and they even helped to make it recognized as an American Viticulture Area (AVA). Columbia Valley produces more Riesling than any other American region, and Chateau Ste. Michelle leads that charge as the leading North American Riesling producer. Chateau Ste. Michelle is known for its award-winning Riesling, Chardonnay, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon, but it didn’t become great magically. They actually have two separate wineries, one for making whites, and another for making reds, which allows them to have complete control of the process. In fact, they’re so serious about the difference that they have dedicated winemakers for each color. While Bob Bertheau is their head winemaker who oversees all wine, Joshua Maloney oversees only the red wines, and Wendy Stuckey cares for the white. This allows Chateau Ste. Michelle to consistently create world-class wines that never fail to surprise judges. Read less

A well-balanced, intense, fruit-forward blended Cab that features black cherry fruit. Smooth and elegant with mild tannins.
