Chateau Ste. Michelle Canoe Ridge Estate Merlot 2013
|Region||United States, Washington, Horse Heaven Hills|
|Brand||Chateau Ste. Michelle|
Broad and spicy, with pepper and clove overtones to the rich blueberry and currant fruit, coming together harmoniously against softly nubby tannins on the expressive finish. Drink now through 2022.
The aromas bring notes of toast, spice and dark fruit. The flavors are pitch black, showing the warmth of the vintage and appellation along with their appeal.
An impressive wine is the 2013 Merlot Canoe Ridge Estate. There’s 5% Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend and it spent 16 months in 59% new French and American oak. Possessing first-rate aromatics of plums, currants, licorice and damp earth, this medium to full-bodied, supple, charming Merlot has outstanding purity and surprising mid-palate density. It’s a sexy wine to drink over the coming 4-5 years.
Fresh, appealing nose of ripe black cherry, cream, cinnamon, liquorice and mint. Cedar and tobacco and palate with long length.
An array of ripe, bright red plums and berries with a good serving of toasty and spicy oak. Acidity kicks in through the finish. An easygoing, approachable style
