Single Vineyards 2015 Canoe Ridge Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine & Spirits, 2018

91 Points, “Best Buy” - October 1

Black 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.

“Year's Best US Cabernet/Blends” - December 1, 2018

Limited Release 2015 Limited Release Canoe Ridge Estate Red Wine Blend

Wine Enthusiast, 2018

87 Points - October 1

Aromas of dill, pickling spice, vanilla, herb and dark fruit lead to straight down the fairway, with light but plump-feeling fruit flavors. The aromas and flavors don’t sync up. —S.S.

Single Vineyards 2015 Cold Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Enthusiast, 2018

87 Points - October 1

The aromas are bright, with notes of cherry, plum, vanilla and baking spice. The fruit flavors are plump, with plenty of barrel accents. The tannins come off as quite dry, leading to a sweet vanilla-filled finish. The oak is at the fore. —S.S.

Columbia Valley 2017 Rosé

Wine Enthusiast, 2018

88 Points, “Best Buy” - September 1

This is the first release of this wine, which is almost all Syrah. A pretty pale-salmon color, aromas of watermelon, strawberry candy, kiwi and bubble gum lead to a lightly spritzy, dry palate, full of strawberry and tropical fruit flavors. It hits a lot of high notes. Best Buy. —S.S.

Columbia Valley 2016 Harvest Select Sweet Riesling

Wine Enthusiast, 2018

87 Points, “Best Buy” - September 1

Ethos Reserve 2016 Ethos Reserve Chardonnay

Wine Enthusiast, 2018

91 Points - September 1

This wine is a blend of fruit from Lawrence, Cold Creek and Canoe Ridge Vineyards. Its aromas are not yet ready to reveal their charms, with custard, lemon zest and flower blossom notes. The palate shows focus, which carries through the lingering finish. —S.S.

Eroica 2016 Eroica Riesling

Wine Enthusiast, 2018

90 Points - September 1

Hightoned lime zest, lime leaf, white peach, honeysuckle and mineral aromas lead to sleek, well-balanced stone fruit and green apple flavors in this wine. It’s delightful on its own, but would also shine at the dinner table. —S.S.

JamesSuckling.com, 2018

93 Points - July 5

This has a composed and compact feel with good depth and density. Aromas and flavors of very deep plums and blackberries with assertive and savory oak spices and meaty nuances. Succulent tannins, too. Powerful and fresh. Drink or hold.

Indian Wells 2015 Indian Wells Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine & Spirits, 2018

90 Points, “Best Buy” - June 1

This starts out incredibly dark and dense, leading with plum scents and a carob spice. It shows its power in its plush fruit and highly polished oak component, the wine firm and full bodied, with more structure than most at this price.
