RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

WOW. This is much more impressive than their 2007. The color is about the same; but for nose, taste, and finish, it's much more smooth and powerful. Very grape-forward, not much complexity. But this generic "Columbia Valley" product suggests that 2008 will be THE Washington State vintage to look for in Cabs and Cab blends. (Maybe Merlot too, haven't tasted one yet.) In my town, a local grocery store made the mistake (for them, not for me :)) of offering an introductory price of less than $7. I bought CASES of the stuff. Unfortunately, it now goes for way more. But, at $15 or less,it's a bargain. I suspect that it will improve with age. I wonder, what will the high-end 2008 releases be like? I'm definitely looking forward to the Release of Columbia Crest H3; it might be an amazing value, with even higher overall quality.
3.5 overall, and a pretty good value. But this listing should be deleted- it duplicates "Chateau Ste. Michelle Cabernet Sauvignon 2008" with region specified as "Columbia Valley". (My review, and another, is under THAT listing.)
For an over all drinkable wine this is the efin ticket. Smooth plum, fig, deep without the obscene high notes. A wine for guiness drinkers. Expand out to a Layer Cake Malbec. These are definitely LPR,s. (Liquid panty removers..) Get some while the gettins' good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
External Reviews for Cold Creek Cabernet Sauvignon
Ripe black cherry character is accented by notes of black pepper. There are also notes of chocolate and creamy vanilla. The tannins are sweet and supple, leading into a pleasant moderate finish.
On first blush, this is a big, honkin' Cabernet, all fruit, a simple blast made to please a crowd. But on closer inspection, there's harmony to the wine, cool and temperate, not at all overripe, with a structure that will benefit from development over time.
Here's why a lot of Washington winemakers got excited about the '98 vintage. When Ste. Michelle's basic Cabernet can be this explosively ripe, this tightly structured, this firmly balanced in its freshness, you know a lot of growers must have hit it right. The wine tastes like juice drawn out of a ripe plum skin, out of cherry skin as well; the tannins add a dark soil character, but the final taste remains with the juice. It's not complex, just delicious. Buy it by the case.
Spice - a hint of tobacco, a hint of milk chocolate - gives way to a ripe set of fruit flavors in this big shouldered, thoroughly seductive red. The texture is driven by fine, peppery tannins, which stem the tide of ripe, plummy fruit, giving the wine a touch of elegance even as it remains irresistible. It's drinking beautiful now; a by-the-case buy.
Deep garnet red color. Medium-bodied. Moderately extracted. Quite tannic. Plums, currants, minerals, brown spice. Rich, ripe black fruit aromas are confirmed on the palate. Some tough angular tannins come through on the finish giving an assertive character. Best with rich foods.
Inky black cherrie scents give way to firm, densely packed, dark fruit flavors. This offers plenty of wine for the money and will benefit from cellar time.
A full-bodied wine with rich aromas and intense cherry flavor. Enjoy now with barbecued beef or grilled lamb, but put some aside for winter chili or stew.
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. This vintage is nearly pure Cabernet (99%) with intense dark fruit and long finish. I call this my steakhouse red!
