Canoe Ridge Expedition Merlot 2020
|Region||United States, Washington, Horse Heaven Hills|
Appealing aromas of cocoa, spice, plum and green pepper lead to somewhat lighter-styled, pleasantly balanced currant flavors, with a tightly wound coil of tannins giving support. It delivers a lot of broad appeal, with plentiful cocoa flavors on the finish.
Black cherries, leafy herbs, and hints of cedar all emerge from the 2018 Expedition Merlot, another value-priced wine from this estate. With plenty of pure fruit, good balance, and medium-bodied richness and depth, it too is ideal for enjoying over the coming 3-5 years.
