One of my favorite Ch. Ste. Michelle branded wines. Winemaker Bob McKay spends time working on this one. Refined dark intense berry-like fruit that tends to change as its poured. A slight leather action on the mouth-feel. This is a wine!! Well worth the 12 bones. $12 / 90pts

Light bodied wine on the palette. Purple in the glass. Not much on the nose other than a bit of spice. Fruity on the palette and earthy. No lingering finish.

The last time I tasted CSM was in the late 90's back in NJ. This wine is easy and it's not 1 sided!! I must say that I really have come to enjoy Indian Wells juice. Just what a cab should be - $13 / 89

Little hot at first sip. As other reviewers stated; gets better after getting some air. Nice wine for 15 bucks a bottle. Good every day wine. Had it with some grilled pork chops that was seasoned with paprika. Smelled alcohol on the nose but good dark fruit afterwards and not as tannic as the nose led me to think

Great value. Jammy and full bodied with a mildly peppery finish. Great value, smooth drinking.

Certainly a great value - under $20.
Bold flavor with peppery finish. Understand why it wa s given 90pt. 2013 vintage Decanting was needed
