Winemaker's Notes

#38 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

Planted by vineyard manager Mimi Nye in 1991, our vineyard at Canoe Ridge Estate is coming out of adolescence and hitting its stride. The wines from this fruit are showing more depth and concentration. The Canoe Ridge Estate Cabernet typifies the Horse Heaven Hills AVA with beautiful, expressive fruit and delicate tannins.

Pairs best with foods such as venison, pork and beef and herbs like thyme, bay leaf and fennel.

Critical Acclaim

"Sturdy, ripe and generous, with a surprisingly soft edge to the explosive black cherry, currant, black olive and smoke flavors, lingering effortlessly on the big, round finish. Best from 2010 through 2018. 5,800 cases made."
92 Points

"The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Canoe Ridge Estate was sourced from vines planted in 1991. Purple-colored, it sports an alluring nose of cedar, cinnamon, allspice, violets, black currant, and blackberry. Layered, bordering on opulent, this full-flavored Cabernet has excellent density, savory flavors, ripe tannins, and plenty of length. It will offer a drinking window extending from 2011 to 2021. "

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon
