Canoe Ridge Vineyard The Expedition Merlot 2017

Horse Heaven Hills, Columbia Valley, Washington, United States

Canoe Ridge Vineyard has given "The Expedition" title to its wines, playing off the ridgetop site named by Lewis and Clark after they noted that it looked like an overturned canoe. Love this Merlot produced from grapes sourced from the Horse Heaven Hills. Look for ripe cherry, plum, flinty flavours matched with vibrant acidity on the palate. Tannins are fine-grained.
