CANOE RIDGE 2012 CABERNET SAUVIGNON "THE EXPEDITION" COLUMBIA VALLEY 750mL

Canoe Ridge is one of Washington State's most recognized wineries, with an estate in the Horse Heaven Hills region along the state's southern border. Their well-drain soils, cool nights, and low rainfall (about 6-8" annually) translates to excellent flavor concentration. The vineyard's latitude and south- and north-facing orientations help vines soak up more than 17 hours of sunshine per day at the peak of summer, resulting in rich, fully mature flavors and supple tannins.

Canoe Ridge's "The Expedition" lineup of wines was inspired by explorers Lewis & Clark. The mindset here was to explore the possibilities of blending some of the extra wine after crafting their flagship wines. Now, while we taste hundreds of "value" wines during the course of the year, there are very few that standout as having high quality to price rations. When we tasted these Expedition wines, we had to do a double take with the vendor; these wines absolutely rocked! The Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon were the stars of the show, and we had to immediately bring them in and share this find with our customers!

With a strong, dark garnet color, this Cabernet has an enticing nose of currants, raspberries, vanilla, sweet oak, and violets. Balanced and fresh on the palate, fresh red berries, cherries, compote, and smoky plum wrap around the palate. This is a complex, yet very easy drinking Cabernet with polished tannins that creep up on the velvety finish
