canoe-ridge-vineyard-the-expedition-cabernet-sauvignon-bottleBest Buy! This Walla Walla brand celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2014, which Seattle-based Precept acquired in 2011. That same year, they imported Napa Valley winemaker Bill Murray. Here he develops aromas of black cherry, plums, cinnamon toast and dark chocolate. The fruit turns darker and more dense on the palate, where the medium body shows the influence of Syrah (14%) and residual sugar (0.8%), making it a straightforward and drink-now offering.

Rating: Excellent

Production: 12,500 cases

Alcohol: 14.1%
