Wonderful wine. Excellent bouquet with great finish. Very tight nose and excellent tannin. I loved this wine!
VERY subtle dark fruity nose. Initially a smooth mouth feel, nothing overwhelming. Has a tendency to linger on the palate. Upon swallowing, the tannins do show themselves; a bit biting/acidic at first, but quickly smooth out. All in all, a very satisfying cab/sav and would definitely consider a "BUY AGAIN". In my area (CT.) a tad on the pricey side for the taste, but I suppose for an "every once in while"; it definitely falls into the category of "pretty good".
Good fruit and tannins. Lots of sediment - decant first. A long finish with a chocolate taste.
Excellent Washington cabernet. Dark, inky color. Aromas of spice, currant, and tobacco leaf. Palate has notes of spice, currant, blackberry, and herbs. Well-integrated tannins make for a plush drinking experience. Would definitely buy again.
Dark brooding color. Not showing much on the nose (yet). The palate reveals a very correct cabernet profile which incorporates some dark blackberry, deep dark currant, and a smooth tannin. Slight sweetness in a positive way. An almost 'brambly' quality I do enjoy. Yep, it's Cabernet. A decent level of acidity with a very decent long aftertaste. Nothing negative to write about here. I think this will be a very great bottle in a year or two, but shant dissapoint now. 90
A very smooth and layered taste with spice, depth and earthiness from this great cab. The winery itself is a great place to visit.
A good, inexpensive bottle. I've been drinking Chateau Ste Michelle Cabs since 1982 and they have been consistently good. Not the kind of wine you serve for your anniversary, but a good Friday night wine with a movie.
