User Reviews for Chateau Ste. Michelle Druthers Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley Limited Release

Winemaker's Notes:

• 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.

Tasting Notes:

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.
