Canoe Ridge Chardonnay 1999
I recommend trying this wine with the summer bounty of fresh fish. Have a fish fry of orange roughy, sea bass, halibut, sturgeon, cod, or even shark. I caught a Dog Fish shark when I was a youngster and I'm pretty sure Chardonnay would have helped make it taste better. Try it with homemade pasta with a cream sauce. It also goes well with a mixture of country cheeses and fruit. I am sure Jake and Elwood would agree this wine screams for "Gimme Some Lovin" from The Best of the Blues Brothers. REM's Green CD would also go well. "Stand" and "Orange Crush" are great summertime toe tappers. -John Abbott ,Winemaker
Wine Alcohol: 13.4%
The winery uses traditional French cellar practices, such as small-lot fermentation, gentle handling and French oak barrels, to enhance the fruit. To allow the best expression of each lot, the winemaker tailors the yeast strains, barrel selection and fermentation practices to complement the many different dimensions of the fruit. The winery is known for its unique Merlot, which displays the traditional elegant, classic flavors of Bordeaux Merlot, yet has the suppleness of Pinot Noir.
