2012 Chateau St. Michelle Canoe Ridge Estate Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon ~ $36
The one thing everyone in the group agreed on was this wine was a bit hot. Then the reviews depended on whether or not that floated your boat. Standing out as the fave of the taster who rated everything according to his own “Big Red Scale” – this was a 9.5 on a 10 point range. And for those who didn’t love it just in the glass, pairing with smoked meats or cheese allowed the enjoyment of pleasant flavors – plum, fresh fig, cinnamon, chocolate, and leather.
