Chateau Ste. Michelle 2001 Canoe Ridge Estate Merlot (Columbia Valley (WA))

Merlot is Canoe Ridge's main calling card, and this is a lean, cherry-flavored wine with an herbal tannic edge. Despite the hefty (14.4%) alcohol, it is not a heavy wine, but the tannins are rather stiff and abrasive right now. Best drinking should be in 3-5 years. Paul Gregutt
