Ste. Michelle's goal with this Columbia Valley Cabernet was to highlight concentrated Washington red
fruit in an accessible style. It is an inviting Cab with plenty of complexity, structure and silky tannins. Itís also very versatile with food--try it with beef, pork or pasta.
Sourced from Columbia Valley vineyards in eastern Washington including Cold Creek, Canoe Ridge Estate and Indian Wells vineyards. Aged 16 months in American and French oak, 32% new.
"Spice - a hint of tobacco, a hint of milk chocolate - gives way to a ripe set of fruit flavors in this big shouldered, thoroughly seductive red. The texture is driven by fine, peppery tannins, which stem the tide of ripe, plummy fruit, giving the wine a touch of elegance even as it remains irresistible. It's drinking beautifully now; a by-the-case buy." -Rated 93, Wine and Spirits Magazine
