Big and robust is the style of our Canoe Ridge Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. This is one rich mouthful of fruit, spice and tannin. It experiences long maceration during fermentation to develop its concentrated style. Each barrel in the final Cabernet blend is individually selected for intensity and structure. Barrel aging lasts for 24 months in 100 percent French oak barrels. The aromas of bright fruit, jalapeno peppers and cassis are classic descriptors with balanced tannins and a hint of cedar fleshing out the mouth.
"Fresh red and black currant flavors fill this very berried cabernet with a surety of fruit. The lovely firmness of texture plays out along a clean line of tannni, a dusty linearity that keeps teh burts of flavor compact and contained. Clean, clear and potent, this should age with grace."
