91pointsChateau Ste. Michelle 2005 Canoe Ridge Estate Merlot (Horse Heaven Hills)

Editors' Choice

A strong contender for the best $22 Merlot in the country. Sculpted, dense and deeply layered, it's loaded with mixed blue and black fruits, fresh herb and sweet toast. The use of new oak is restrained and appropriate, extending the finish with nicely applied streaks of coffee around ripe, tight, dry tannins. Paul Gregutt
