Wine Review: This opaque and almost pitch black colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington State opens with a mild black cherry bouquet with a hint of blackberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is an oak influenced black currant and black cherry blend with notes of black olive and some hints of minerality. The finish is dry and its medium tannins are prolonged for a little while. This Cab really excels with some aeration. It is food friendly and I would pair it with Kobe beef sliders. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The Canoe Ridge Estate Cab is a beautifully balanced wine that offers a classic, fresh expression of Horse Heaven Hills fruit. The wine offers black currant flavors, hints of sage and elegant tannins. I love this wine with just about any food!
