Canoe Ridge Vineyard 2010 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Horse Heaven Hills, $24

By on April 29, 2013

Washington wineThis Walla Walla, Wash., winery is coming up on its 20th anniversary, and it is in its third ownership change – and for the first time is owned by a Washington-based company. Precept Wine in Seattle rescued Canoe Ridge (and its Horse Heaven Hills vines) from an international conglomerate that was not treating it well. You would do well to enjoy this delicious Cab. It opens with aromas of mint, lilac, flint, cocoa powder and boysenberry syrup, followed by flavors of blackberry, black cherry and chocolate. It’s all backed up with moderate tannins, firm acidity and a rounded midpalate.

Rating: Excellent

Production: 6,800
