Our estate vineyard is located in Washington State's preeminent wine region, the Columbia Valley. We produce wines with intense flavors by growing our grapes in a unique location with distinctive soils and microclimate. In 1989, a group of farmers started planting winegrapes on Canoe Ridge, which up to that time had been home to only badgers and sagebrush. Canoe Ridge Vineyard's original 101 acres of plantings were completed and additional acres were developed. A total of 143 acres are now in full production. Our estate vineyard overlooks the vast Umatilla National Wildlife Refuge, which encompasses 29,370 acres of marshes, sloughs, open water and cropland. This is a popular nesting area for Great Basin Canadian geese, several species of ducks and other marsh and water birds. Read less

Heat and red cherry aromas are sort of a one-track idea but strong and direct. On the palate there's more going on, with loads of fruit flavors and cola. Strident red fruit flavors are powerful and precede a candied finish. If you are looking for an example of a dry wine that carries itself like a sweet one, look no further.
