Canoe Ridge Vineyard-2012-Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon BottleBill Murray uses one of Walla Walla’s most historic wine production facilities — originally home to the town’s streetcar — to create superb wines from the estate fruit in Horse Heaven Hills. Aromas of black currant, dark cherry, cola and coffee pick up hints of leather and vanilla. On the palate, the focus is on cherries, plums and chocolate. Pleasing balance to a firm tannins, which still allows for hints of Horse Heaven Hills minerality and a finish of cola.
