Chateau Ste. Michelle Red Bordeaux Blend Columbia Valley Artist Series Meritage 2009
Fermented in small lots for maximum flexibility during blending. • Daily gentle pumpovers were used to extract optimal flavor and color and minimize harsh tannins. • The pumpovers vary by block, tank and day of fermentation. Every ferment is tasted daily to evaluate the evolution of the tannins, modify extraction techniques and find the right moment to drain the wine off of its skins. • Aged for 20 months in 45% new French oak, 30% new American oak and 25% neutral oak barrels.
