Chateau Ste. Michelle Canoe Ridge Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
|Region||United States, Washington, Horse Heaven Hills|
|Brand||Chateau Ste. Michelle|
Smooth and polished, with a pleasant cocoa nib note adding interest to the dark berry, currant and gentle herb flavors. Shows depth and distinction. Best from 2013 through 2018. 4,000 cases made.
Quite young, this wine is still showing some reduced flavors, so give it plenty of breathing time. Clean and varietal black fruit and generous amounts of chocolaty oak provide the foundation. More time is needed to pull all the components together into a seamless whole.
