Chateau Ste. Michelle Druthers Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley Limited Release 2009
• Ripe grapes were destemmed and underwent a slow and gentle fermentation in efforts to maximize the rich extract without introducing any harsh tannins. • Daily gentle pumpovers were used to extract optimal ﬂ avor and color and minimize harsh tannins. The pumpovers can vary by block, tank and day of fermentation. Every ferment is tasted every day to evaluate the evolution of the tannins, modify extraction techniques and ﬁ nd the right moment to drain the wine off of its skins. • The wine was unﬁ ned and unﬁ ltered.

The 2009 Druthers Cabernet Sauvignon is a bold and assertive wine that exhibits intense dark fruit aromas and ﬂ avors. We blended Druthers to be a powerful wine with layers of complexity. On the palate, there is incredible fruit concentration and robust, yet balanced tannins that linger on the ﬁ nish.
178 cases produced.
Notes: Aged in 100% New French oak for 20 months. The barrels for this wine were specially selected extra ﬁ ne grain oak.
