Chateau Ste. Michelle Canoe Ridge Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

SKU 088586665943


Canoe Ridge Estate Cabernet expresses the uniqueness of terroir, year in and year out. The 2013 vintage, which was quite warm and early, intensified these qualities. Classic Horse Heaven Hills fruit flavors of cherries are expressed as ripe/dark cherries. Canoe Ridge's elegant tannins are still fine and powdery, but with an added level of extract and density. A beautiful expression of Canoe Cabernet in a wonderfully warm and balanced vintage. Enjoy with everything.

Wine AdvocateA rocking value, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Canoe Ridge Estate Vineyards would cost five times the price if it came from Napa. Made from 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Merlot, aged 22 months in 62% new French oak, it has fabulous Cabernet character in its ripe currant fruits, crushed rock, and tobacco leaf-like aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, concentrated and layered, with a great texture, drink it anytime over the coming decade.

Wine EnthusiastThe aromas bring notes of toast, spice and dark fruit. The flavors are pitch black, showing the warmth of the vintage and appellation along with their appeal.
