International Wine Competition - New World Red.
WineSpectator.com - September 28, 2012
12 Exciting Washington Reds. Fans of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot can find plenty of exciting wines in this selection of new releases from Washington state. They come from a mix of well-established names as well as some newer producers that are worth keeping an eye on. Overall, the wines are supple and balanced with ripe fruit flavors and stand out for their combination of quality and affordability—all are priced under $40, with seven available for $25 or less. While some Washington Cabernets can carry price tags in the triple-digit range, the state remains a good source for value. Chateau Ste. Michelle’s Ethos Reserve, the winery’s flagship Cabernet, takes top honors in this report. Rich, ripe, warm and generous, with spicy cherry and plum flavors that pick up nutmeg and floral notes as the finish lingers against fine tannins. (92 points)
92 points - “#52 - 100 Best Washington Wines” Seattle Met - September 1, 2012
Ste. Michelle's Ethos series is designed to show the best traits of each vintage. This 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is all that and more, rich with ripe fruit flavors in a big, bold style.
The Herald (Everett, WA) - August 1, 2012
The attraction begins with its inky nose of black cherry extract and includes raspberry, root beer and woodruff, backed by humidor aromas and the cured meat mark of syrah. The presentation to the palate shows lovely extraction with juicy black cherry, black licorice, black olive and Belgian chocolate. Its growth of tannins in the finish are resolved, yet this wine should continue to evolve for the next five to eight years. In the meantime, enjoy with a porterhouse.
Wine Peeps - June 4, 2012
Dark purplish red. Very aromatic with leather, earth, and a touch of creosote on the nose. Gorgeous black fruit and licorice come through on the palate. Full-bodied with crisp acidity and medium to high tannins. Well-balanced with a long, lingering finish.
