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

Founded in 1934, Chateau Ste. Michelle is the oldest winery in Columbia Valley, Washington. Recently tasted the 2014 & 2013 vintages, deep Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruit. On the palate ripe cherry and blackberry flavors with grainy tannins, oak, and vanilla spice. This full body wine finished about medium and had plenty of character. Nice value. Tasting Sample.

Corked, just barely, but corked is corked.

Surprise Winner of our 4/22/16 Altaire blind tasting. Elegant cab, very smooth. When we unveiled the wines, I couldn't believe it wasn't the Justin cab I had brought.

Good cab for $11. I’ve had more poorly balanced $60 bottles.

That's US CS. Concentrated. A bit sweet and burned flavor. Smooth tanning. @899, Eva - TH, 180615

Good fruit-forward value cab, herby on the back, pretty soft tannins. Would definitely bring this to a party.

Full-bodied. Very earthy/meaty. Truncated finish. Not expensive. Went well with steak on the grill.
