Chateau Ste. Michelle Cabernet Sauvignon Cold Creek Vineyard Columbia Valley 2011
External Reviews for Chateau Ste. Michelle Cabernet Sauvignon Cold Creek Vineyard Columbia Valley
We craft our Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon to express Washington's distinctive world-class vineyards. This cab is complex yet inviting, with concentrated fruit flavors and silky tannins. It's also very versatile with food. Pair this with beef tenderloin or pasta. - Bob Bertheau, Head Winemaker ** SOLD OUT **
Highlights concentrated Washington red fruit in an accessible style. An inviting Cab with plenty of complexity and structure with silky tannins.
Firm and chewy, with a peppery, green edge to the clear blackberry flavors, fading a bit as the finish does a diminuendo. Drink now through 2010. 10,000 cases made.
Good dark red. Reduced aromas of licorice and clove spice. Supple and creamy in the mouth; denser than the Indian Wells example but still quite dominated by its oak element, showing more mocha and clove than primary fruits today. With its easygoing texture and soft tannins, this seems ready to drink.
Even better, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Cold Creek Vineyard is impressive, with classic dark fruits, graphite, lead pencil shavings, licorice and herb-like aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, beautifully textured, balanced and with fine tannin, it’s an excellent bottle of wine that will have upwards of a decade’s of longevity.
