Canoe RIdge Merlot reserveCanoe Ridge Vineyard
Big Reds Bargain Case $250
regular retail $370 SAVE $120

The Canoe Ridge Big Reds Bargain Case contains Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot as follows:

10 bottles - Canoe Ridge
Cabernet Sauvignon 02 regular $28
made by
Woodward Canyon's Kevin Mott when he was winemaker at Canoe Ridge. The wine was aged in 100 percent French oak barrels for 16 months. Bursting with dark berry and plum fruit flavors, this Cabernet Sauvignon shows touches of chocolate, spice and cedar, mixed with toasty vanilla.


2 bottles - Canoe Ridge
Reserve Merlot 00 regular $45
made by John Abbott before he left Canoe Ridge Vineyard to start cult winery Abeja. Scent and flavors are of black cherry, chocolate, toasted espresso bean, fresh saddle leather, chewy but well integrated tannins, just a huge, complex, world class Merlot. This Merlot Reserve is what makes this such a deal- we sent this Merlot to our Big Reds Club two years ago, and the wine is just beautiful.

More notes from the winery: "The black cherry, raspberry and chocolate aromas found in our Canoe Ridge Merlot 00 are even more intense in this reserve bottling. The concentration of these flavors allows the use of more new oak barrels without overpowering the fruit flavors. The higher level of oak adds more richness and roundness to the palate and adds smoke and sweet toastiness to the aroma. We blended in a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc to fill out the middle palate and to add additional aromas and complexity."
