Blend: 90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
"This is our refined and elegant Merlot with plenty of Washington
concentration. The 2004 bottling exhibits complex aromas of
black cherries, leather, dried herbs with dusty, restrained tannins.
This wine showcases that perfect Horse Heaven appellation
balanced style. The bottom line is that Canoe Ridge Estate
really does Merlot right! Try this one with chicken parmigiana or a pork tenderloin."
- Bob Bertheau, Head Winemaker
