User Reviews for Chateau Ste. Michelle Red Bordeaux Blend Columbia Valley Artist Series Meritage

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Tasting Notes:

Artist Series is the ultimate sculpted wine created by blending amazing Washington fruit. The 2009 represents a perfect harmony of elegance from our Canoe Ridge Estate vineyard and the power of our Cold Creek vineyard. The blend includes all five Bordeaux grape varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. The result is a multi-layered, complex and harmonious wine. Canoe Ridge Estate fruit contributes elegance, structure and fine-grained tannins while Cold Creek vineyard lends concentrated, old vine intensity.
