Canoe Ridge Estate Merlot '11
Grown in the cool climate of Washington State, Canoe Ridge Estate Merlot '11 is a fruit forward, rich wine that embodies all the best qualities of New World Merlot. It's soft on the tongue with a long finish that has plenty of smooth tannins. Full bodied without being overwhelming, this wine has flavors and aromas of plum and black cherry. In order to give the wine a little more structure so that the delicate qualities of the Merlot don't fall flat, a little Cabernet Sauvignon is added. This is a wine that consistently scores in the 90's with the wine critics at Wine Enthusiast, Wine Spectator, and Wine & Spirits.
