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 solid effort, much improved from the sub-par offerings of recent vintages. Soft and plump, it will please many consumers who want something easy and ready to drink with tonight's burger.

This is made in a very approachable style, with chocolate and spice flavors ahead of light red fruits. In the blend are Syrah, Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc, which makes this more of a proprietary red than a true Cabernet Sauvignon. Whatever you call it, the wine's soft palate and highlights of cracker, mocha and sandalwood make it easy to enjoy.

Earthy and gamy are the first impressions, with ripe blackberry looming behind it. Structure is solid and the texture has polish. Needs time to come together. Best after 2008.

Don't let the price tag fool you; this is a sophisticated blend with Merlot, Cab Franc, Malbec and Syrah comprising a quarter of the total. Aromatic and inviting, it brings spicy berry, red currant and Bing cherry fruit into play. Chewy tannins carry a hint of herb, and the presence of new oak is minimal at best. Just a hint of chocolate malt hits in the finish.

Ripe and appealing for its pure currant and plum fruit, resting on a modestly scaled structure. Lingers gently. Drink now through 2012.

Washington State's Columbia Valley produces wonderfully long-lived Cabernet Sauvignon with intense flavors and aromas. Aging in French and American small oak barrels for a minimum of 16 months adds grace and charm to the wine. Bacon-cheddar burgers or beef stew would be a perfect accompaniment.

Winemaker's Notes:

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!
