Smells so oaks! Tastes milder than expected; like vanilla, almonds, and a little oak. Dry and smooth, silky finish.

Medium/full-bodied, round tannins, fresh, long finish with a good balance of different flavors: ripe black cherry, ripe raspberry, mocha, oak, vanilla, and perhaps pepper. Drinks easily.

Eh. Has a nice oak start with a full flavor then crashes into a mess of different tastes.

Easy drinking, classic Washington can. Cherry, vanilla, clover and anise. Super soft finish and low tannins.

Great medium cab...on the fruity side and goes well with most types of food.

Another good low price wine from Chateau St Michelle. Nice flavor, soft alcohol presence, clean finish. Can't be beat for $12/bottle.

In a few more years, I feel like this will develop into a very very good wine. Love it already! Going to buy half a case for storing :)

Warm climate character; fruity, coconutty, unbalanced. Like their whites (esp. riesling) better.
