Canoe Ridge Vineyard 2011 The Expedition Merlot, Horse Heaven Hills, $15
This Walla Walla winery with estate grapes in the Horse Heaven Hills went through a couple of ownership changes before landing with Seattle’s Precept Wine. Now the label is on the right track again. This is a delicious and eminently affordable red with aromas of blueberry, cherry, vanilla and cocoa. On the palate, its smooth tannins are backed with yummy flavors of black cherry, blackberry, chocolate and boysenberry. This is perfect for summer barbecues and priced for everyday drinking.
Production: 7,500 cases
