"Scents of India ink and evergreen relax with air into scents of cedar, carob and black cherry. On the palate it remains dense and tightly woven, with a grainy texture that seems textbook Horse Heaven Hills. It needs time, but it is a great buy to set against a steak. The 2009 Canoe Ridge Estate Cab is a beautifully balanced wine that offers a classic, fresh expression of Horse Heaven Hills fruit. The wine shows varietal black olive notes with ripe cherry flavors and soft tannins. It is the go to wine that can handle any food. Blend: 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot alcohol by volume: 15.0%"
