2004 marked Bob Bertheau's first red wine harvest for Chateau Ste. Michelle, where he managed the red winemaking from start to finish for the first time. His goal was to produce a softer mouthfeel and enhanced complexity for the red wines, while highlighting the elegance of Canoe Ridge Estate fruit.
The 2004 Canoe Ridge Estate Cabernet delivers black cherry fruit, spicy oak, leather and sweet caramel characters. Its soft, elegant, slightly dusty finish is typical of Canoe Ridge Estate. This wine shows the more "subtle" side of Washington Cabernet. It doesn't hit you over the head, but rather gently entices you with seductive fruit and spice layers.
Try this with penne pasta marinara or veal scaloppini. Those slightly "dusty Tuscan" tannins are a great match with Italian foods.
