By this point, you have to admit that I'm consistent. I'm a BIG Washington red wine fan, and I think CSM OVER-delivers on the price to quality ratio. This is PURE Cabernet with minerality, oomph and finish. Buckle up!
Chateau Ste Michelle produces wonderful wines. This one is no exception. Dark color, intense fruit, well balanced, nice tannins and a great smokey finish.
The oak in this wine makes this a smooth and thoroughly enjoyable wine. I am surprised by the lower marks this wine has received, and I can only guess they were written before this wine reached its prime. By March 2011 this wine has quite a bit of sediment, and a bit of decanting will bring out the fruity flavor and prevent you from getting the grit that might otherwise result. The soft tannins and velvety feel of this wine tell me it is perfect right now in 2011. Admittedly, I think a Cab should have strong oak overtones, and this wine meets that requirement. I will certainly grab more of this vintage to consume in the near future. I would serve this wine at any occasion, from humble to most sophisticated. Regardless of the previous reviews, I think this wine is a winner, and I would highly recommend it.
Hey guys (and girls): I just put this against the 2008 in a side-by-side, and WOW! What a difference! Look for the 2008. In comparison to the new release (I just bought a case), the 2007 tastes sort of like a Franzia box.

Rating: 86/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. Starting off nicely with its aromas of black cherries with hints of dried currant, this one then drifts into an interesting bit of juicy, slightly berryish complexity and turns out to be a touch on the open, drink-me-now side in the mouth. Still, it has fruit, it has good depth relative to its asking price, and, bottom line, it is both tasty and widely available.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.
A straight-ahead, no-frills effort that shows herb-tinged cassis and cherry fruit and tight, dry tannins. A hint of tobacco and green tea enlivens the finish. This wine surely will prove cellar-worthy; it may not reach its peak for at least a decade.
Tight, firm and chewy, with a pretty beam of ripe, spicy currant and black cherry flavors enlivened by crisp acidity and flanked by firm tannins. Needs time to soften and mellow. Start drinking around 1998.
In an outstanding vintage, even the basic wines from good producers can be dazzling. The combination of price and availability on this one is too good to pass up. It's a seductive Cabernet, polished and plump in texture, with ripe blueberry, plum and currant flavors wrapped together with spicy oak notes. Drink it through 2005.
Ripe black cherry character is accented by notes of black pepper. There are also notes of chocolate and creamy vanilla. The tannins are sweet and supple, leading into a pleasant moderate finish.
Rich and generous, a lush mouthful of currant and berry fruit shaded nicely with hints of sage and pepper. Everything lingers enticingly, marking this a good cellar-candidate. Drink now through 2005.
One of Washington State's rare Excellent values in red wines, the medium to dark ruby-colored 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon offers a delicate blackberry-scented bouquet. This juicy, medium-bodied Cabernet reveals appealing depth to its dark fruit and fresh herb-flavored character. A structured, well-balanced, firm effort, it will be its finest between 2002-2006.
Cabernet from this iconic 35-year-old vineyard always delivers power, structure and rich concentrated black fruit. This is a dense wine with great aging potential. Fruit is the star of the show for our Cold Creek Cabernet!
