Chateau Ste. Michelle Canoe Ridge Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||United States, Washington, Horse Heaven Hills|
|Brand||Chateau Ste. Michelle|
The aromas provide immediate appeal, with notes of blackberry, coffee, graphite, baking spices and dried herbs. Chocolate and cherry flavors follow, showing a lot of polish. It mixes equal parts fruit and barrel.
Aromas of ripe plum, dark cherries and dusty blackberry waft out of the glass of the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Canoe Ridge Estate Vineyard with hints of vanilla and toasted coconut. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is balanced with ripe fruit flavors that melt away to expose a firm tannic structure that will keep this wine food-friendly for the next five to seven years. Only 5,800 bottles were filled after the wine rested in two-thirds neutral oak with 26% new French and 7% new American oak barrels.
