    Winemaker's Notes:

    Washington is well-known for its mouthwatering Merlot, and this velvety single vineyard wine from a great vintage will show you why! An incredible value, this richly aromatic wine suggests raspberry and blueberry distinguished by loads of appealing toasty cinnamon spice, vanilla, and a hint of orange zest. Deep plummy fruit flavors are remarkably well developed, balanced by ample tannins. There's an intriguing hint of black pepper in the long full finish.

    "Ste. Michelle has performed well with its half of the Canoe Ridge vineyard, which faces the Columbia River just past the eastern end of the gorge. This vintage is ripe, supple and distinctive for the bay leaf and olive character running through the black cherry and roasted meat flavors, finishing with fine, firm tannins. Drink now through 2010."

    We opened a bottle at at a tasting at my home and the people there felt it was one of the best reds of the night. It was opened because one person said they didn't like Merlot. They left with a different attitude.
