Chateau Ste. Michelle Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley Cold Creek Vineyard 2009
Cabernet from this iconic 40-year-old vineyard consistently delivers power, structure and rich concentrated black fruit. This is a dense, decadent wine with great aging potential. The vintage is 100% pure Cabernet with intense dark blackberry and plum fruit flavors and long finish. This is a true steakhouse red!
My Rating 86: Disappointing for an Ste. Michelle. The body well balanced ,boring. The nose a little short , although well balanced, elegant. For the price of $ 12 I would not buy this again
Not a bad cab but nothing that will knock your socks off.
Bright, full bodied. Slightly high on the alcohol. Would not buy again but was satisfactory for a first try.
Not complex but really great for the price point. Surprisingly smooth. Definite tar flavor. I am going to buy a ton for thanksgiving. Perfect for a low price wine to pleasure the guests.
Two and a half glasses
External Reviews for Chateau Ste. Michelle Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley Cold Creek Vineyard
Candied blackberries, waxy dark cherries, spices, tar, and licorice make up the mouth-watering aromatics of the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Indian Wells. This outstanding wine, which is produced in Bordeaux-like quantities (21,000 cases) is sultry, decadent, and intense. Its suave personality slathers the palate with lush, broad waves of black fruits and tar. Bertheau, who believes, as I do, that texture is paramount in great wines, should be proud of this effort's sensual mouthfeel and supple finish. It may not be complex but boy what pleasure it delivers! Drink this terrific value over the next 5 years.
Ripe, soft and generous, appealing for its earth-scented currant flavors, finishing with a firm layer of tannins. Drink now through 2010.
This should prove to be quite popular, as it's loaded with blackberry and sweet black cherry fruit flavors. It carries the fruit with stiff but polished tannins, and brings in accents of licorice, coffee and dark chocolate. Nothing is overdone; the balance here is just right, and the addition of 16% Syrah brings with it a dash of pepper.
Polished, round and generous, offering a plush mouthful of blackberry, cherry and mint flavors that ride easily over fine tannins through the long, expressive finish. Drink now through 2015.
The aromas are firm and appealing, a good mix of black cherry and black currant, with a hint of garden soil. The mouthfeel is young and still taut, showing raspberry along with cherry fruit, and some stiff but well-managed tannins.
Winemaker's Notes - The Indian Wells Cabernet is our warm climate, ripe, jammy New World style of Cabernet Sauvignon. Vineyards in the area are more than a decade old now and showing character and complexity. This lush wine reveals fruit-forward blackberry and cherry flavors and dark fruit aromas.

Our goal with the Columbia Valley Cabernet is to highlight concentrated Washington red fruit in an accessible style. This is our inviting Cab with plenty of complexity and structure with silky tannins. It’s also very versatile with food--try it with beef, pork or pasta.
