Founded in 1994 in Walla Walla, Canoe Ridge Vineyard has established an iconic reputation for sourcing wines directly from the estate vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills. Led by winemaker Haydn Mouat, the winery is focused on Bordeaux varietal production with emphasis on Merlot. A majority of the cooperage is French oak to add soft toasted notes as the wines age. The wines are made with structure and softness.
