This wine has dark coloring and ripe fruit on the nose. It fills the mouth with blackberry jam followed by a rich spiciness and a long moderate tannic finish.

The wine reflects the rich, round, powerful style of Washington fruit, highlighting seven varietals. It is a true example of the art of blending. The wine offers jammy boysenberry flavors from the Syrah with a luscious backbone from the Merlot.

This deftly balanced red shows dark plum and blueberry flavors on a soft texture. Supple finish. Drink now.

The nose opens with black cherries and plums. Medium-bodied; dark and juicy, the palate is full of more cherries, black currants, and dark, juicy berries. The oak contributes just enough richness and helps soften the tannins in the finish. Try with steak or veal.

Grapes are sourced from a collection of warm-climate vineyards that range from the Wahluke Slope to Cold Creek Vineyard, and include the namesake Indian Wells Vineyard. The resulting wines are rich, round, and full-bodied.

Here's a wine from Chateau Ste. Michelle that is just what you've been waiting for. The wineries of Washington's Columbia Valley make outstanding wine but the two grape varietals at which they truly excel are Merlot and Syrah. Well Ste. Michelle matched up those two superstar grapes in this exciting blend. 60% Merlot, 28% Syrah 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and few others for good measure. All sourced from their prime vineyard sites including Indian Wells on the Wahluke Slope and the Canoe Ridge in Horse Heaven Hills. These regions produce consistent high quality, ripe fruit. The wine was carefully fermented and aged 14-16 months in 33% new American oak, and 22% new French oak barrels. It shows bright berry flavors along with dark chocolate, licorice and spices. Supple and lively with a lingering finish. The perfect Washington State match is finally made.

Winemaker's Notes:

“The Indian Wells Cabernet is our warm climate, ripe, jammy “New World” style of Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine really typifies the Wahluke Slope region with dark fruit aromas and flavors with hints of vanilla. Vineyards in the area are more than a decade old now and showing character and complexity.”
