Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Ste. Michelle's goal with this Cabernet from Columbia Valley was to showcase the concentrated red grapes in an every day wine. This Cab has loads of complexity and structure with smooth tannins. Ste. Michelle's Cab is also very food friendly, pairing well with pastas, beef, or pork.

Chateau Ste. Michelle:
  You’d be hard-pressed (just like the grapes!) to find a more influential winery than Chateau Ste. Michelle. It’s Washington State’s oldest winery, getting its start when Pommerelle Wine Company and the National Wine Company merged in 1954 to form the American Wine Growers.

  You’d be hard-pressed (just like the grapes!) to find a more influential winery than Chateau Ste. Michelle. It’s Washington State’s oldest winery, getting its start when Pommerelle Wine Company and the National Wine Company merged in 1954 to form the American Wine Growers. From there, they created a premium line of vinifera wines in 1967 called “Ste. Michelle Vintners,” under the direction of Andre Tchelistcheff, which is where Ste. Michelle really took off. Their first vines were planted at the now-legendary Cold Creek Vineyard in Eastern Washington in 1972. When a French style chateau was built in Woodinville by Ste. Michelle Vintners in 1976, the winery finally became known as Chateau Ste. Michelle. The terroir is very important for Chateau Ste. Michelle. Columbia Valley isn’t just important because they have over 3,500 acres under vine there - they love the land, and they even helped to make it recognized as an American Viticulture Area (AVA). Columbia Valley produces more Riesling than any other American region, and Chateau Ste. Michelle leads that charge as the leading North American Riesling producer. Chateau Ste. Michelle is known for its award-winning Riesling, Chardonnay, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon, but it didn’t become great magically. They actually have two separate wineries, one for making whites, and another for making reds, which allows them to have complete control of the process. In fact, they’re so serious about the difference that they have dedicated winemakers for each color. While Bob Bertheau is their head winemaker who oversees all wine, Joshua Maloney oversees only the red wines, and Wendy Stuckey cares for the white. This allows Chateau Ste. Michelle to consistently create world-class wines that never fail to surprise judges. Read less

Our goal with the Columbia Valley Cabernet is to highlight concentrated Washington red fruit in an accessible style. This is our inviting Cab with plenty of complexity and structure with silky tannins. It's also very versatile with food-try it with beef, pork or pasta.- Bob Bertheau, Head WinemakerBlend:85% Cabernet Sauvignon6% Syrah3% Merlot6% other varieties (Malbec, Petit Verdot and Grenache)Total acidity: 0.52g/100mlph: 3.86Alcohol: 13.5%

A classic and a real steal, this generous cabernet offers scents of cassis and mocha, adorned with a hint of pine. The flavors are warm and open, its cedar accents lending old-school elegance to generous, dark fruit and slightly furry tannins. A great weeknight red for a smoked pork chop.

Chewy, nicely focused and appealing, with ripe black cherry and licorice flavors that dance deftly on the finish. Drink now through 2015.

A killer value that drinks like a wine at least $10 more expensive. Robust and spice-driven, with rich black fruit and bold tannic structure.
