Lots of dark chocolate, coffee, espresso and mocha aromas on the nose and palate from generous oak aging. Coconut and blackberry jam on the palate. Medium-bodied and smooth. Pair with Mexican mole. The wine's label is named in honour of explorers Lewis and Clark who mapped the Columbia Ridge in 1805.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: grilled New York strip loin, hard cheese, braised pork shanks, veal chops.

Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Blackberry and shaved chocolate on the nose supplemented with a palate that is loaded with stewed jammy fruit, cassis dripped blackberries, blueberries, earth and cedar. Perfect tonight for dinner, served with bruschetta and homemade meatballs.
From Horse Heaven Hills in Washington Canoe Ridge The Expedition (2015) is a young Cabernet Sauvignon with dark chocolate blackberry flavours. This is an easy-drinking Cab from a single vineyard. Pair with roasted root vegetables and steak. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
