Deep, dark purplish red in color. Nice nose with chocolate, black fruit, and cinnamon aromas. Blackcurrant, black cherry, chocolate, and leather come through on the palate. Medium to full-bodied with crisp acidity, medium to high tannins, and a long finish.

(Greg Tresner, MS selects wines for the award-winning Master List of Il Terrazzo restaurant) The 2009 has 12 percent merlot and syrah added to the blend for richness and aroma. Dry and moderately tannic when young, these qualities lend themselves to food pairings of rich meat dishes. You’ll also find tilled earth and black currants in the flavors with a moderately long finish. Great with grilled rib eye steak.

The pedigree for this wine for the last five years, has been scores of 90 and above. I see no need to change that trend. This is a very drinkable Cabernet from the folks at Chateau Ste. Michelle, and will continue to drink well for the next three or four years. The Ste. Michelle Indian Wells vineyard is located in the Columbia Valley in the southeast portion of Washington, where it enjoys long warm growing days. The Indian Wells Cabernet is 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, with small amounts of Syrah, Malbec, and Cabernet Franc added to balance its flavor spectrum. Fifteen months of oak aging also helped smooth out its edges, and added a little toasty vanilla oak to the finish. The alcohol content is 14.5%. The nose is heady with the fragrance of cherries, which drift into jammy flavors of dark berries and black cherry. The finish has the subtle untertones of oak which allow the concentrated fruit flavors to sail on into the night. The touch of Syrah adds a hint of pepper to this verry approachable Cabernet. The style is modern but sturdy enough to stand up to any full flavored grilled meat, especially steak.

Dark fruit aromas of blackberry and black cherry greet the nose with hints of mocha and oak. On the palate, the wine is a bit of a fruit bomb with dark, ripe fruit flavors, a medium-full body, soft tannins and a bit too much alcoholic heat.
