Wine & SpiritsBlack as ink, with black-cherry scents, this has a whiff of clove and violet that gives the wine some initial lift. But mostly, it’s dark and brooding, like plums modestly spiced with anise. A big, heavy wine with pitch-dark tannins, this needs cellar time, then double-decant it for steak.
Wine AdvocateOffering up aromas of sweet cassis fruit, cigar tobacco and rich spices, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Canoe Ridge Estate Vineyard is medium-bodied, supple and velvety, with good balance and a generous core of fruit, concluding with an attractively savory finish. It's a success.
