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. Unique location Canoe Ridge gently slopes five miles toward the east and west from its 910-foot peak. We selected this site for Canoe Ridge Vineyard because of its distinctive microclimate, which is perfect for growing Merlot, Read more »

  • The Expedition Merlot Canoe Ridge Vineyard 2012


    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. Read More

  • Canoe Ridge Vineyards Expedition Cabernet Sauvignon 2012


    The wine is a deep ruby color in the glass, certainly appropriate for a Cabernet from the Columbia Valley. The nose is quite pleasant with some lovely floral notes atop some rich, ripe fruit notes of plum and red currant and just a bit of smokiness. The taste is really quite nice, very fruit forward, with flavors of ripe raspberry, blackberry ... Read More

    100% barrel fermented, 50% natural yeats, one third new wood, sends 10 months in oak Fairly oaky on the nose and a bit creamy though nicely floral and fresh with tart apple aromas. Starting off a bit soft and round in the mouth this shows off fine clarity to the fruit, rather pear driven with spicy cider apple notes wrapped in a creamy barre... Read More
