The Canoe Ridge Estate Merlot is a refined and elegant Merlot with
bright Rainier cherry fruit character and a soft finish. This is a very
versatile, medium-bodied, food-friendly wine. Its dusty tannins make
it a great match with Italian food.
Pair with lamb, pasta, beef, fowl and dishes with herbs such as basil, oregano and rosemary.
"The red wines begin with the 2006 Merlot Canoe Ridge Estate which was aged for 18 months in French and American oak. Deep crimson-colored, the nose displays plenty of spice notes along with a slight herbal component.
