Winemaker Notes

The Canoe Ridge Estate Merlot is an elegant Merlot with bright red cherry fruit character with savory spice notes and a soft finish. This is an easy-to-drink wine with plenty of complexity. Its dusty tannins make it a perfect match with Italian food, lamb, fowl, beef.

Critical Acclaim

WS 92
Wine Spectator

Sleek, supple and generous, brimming with blueberry and currant fruit that's shaded by hints of dried tomato, currant leaf and sage notes. All of it comes together seamlessly on the fine-grained finish. Drink now through 2017.

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

A fine effort in this classic vintage, the Merlot is firm, almost muscualr and dappled with fresh herbs-cilantro and basil. The brambly blackberry fruit has the power to more than hold hits own after 18 months in two-thirds new French oak.

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.
