Chateau Ste. Michelle Cabernet Sauvignon Indian Wells Columbia Valley 2011
The Indian Wells Cabernet is our warm climate ripe, jammy "New World" style of Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine typifies the Wahluke Slope region with up front, dark fruit aromas and flavors with hints of vanilla. Vineyards in the area are more than a decade old and showing character and complexity.
Recently tried a couple of bottles of the 2010 vintage, and really enjoyed them. The wine is full bodied with good fruit, with some oaky spice. Nice finish, and a great value at around $15.00 Would be great with a nice steak or burger.

External Reviews for Chateau Ste. Michelle Cabernet Sauvignon Indian Wells Columbia Valley
Fresh and appealing, with pure, light black cherry and herb flavors, lingering gently. The firm tannins should benefit from cellaring. Drink now through 2016.
The popular Indian Wells bottling from Chateau Ste. Michelle includes 10% Syrah, sourced from the Wahluke Slope. The combination is a proven winner. This medium-bodied, fruit-forward wine’s inviting raspberry and cherry flavors are anchored with well-structured tannins.
Bright, saturated ruby-red. Expressive aromas of raspberry, black cherry, redcurrant and coffee. Sweet and a bit reduced, offering moderate depth to its red fruit and sweet vanilla flavors. Not bad but carrying a lot of mocha oak. A wine with modest real definition but good sweetness. A bit blurry on the finish.
