Sipping Fine Wine

Founded in 1934, Chateau Ste. Michelle is the oldest winery in Washington with some of the most mature vineyards in the Columbia Valley. From their 40-year old Cold Creek Vineyard, Dark red with dark berry fruit aromas and complex spice. On the palate blackberry, blueberry and current flavors with leather and herb spice on a silky tannin structure, well balanced. Finish lingers ending with a little mineral tones.

Good but nothing special. Spicy with tanins. Probably not worth the price.

A really well balanced Cabernet with rich red and black fruit but with super silky tannins. Great if decanted!
