Top 100 Washington Wines - #88
89 points The Wine Advocate - October 31, 2009
The 2007 Ethos Chardonnay is a blend of Cold Creek Vineyard and Canoe Ridge Estate fruit. It was barrel-fermented (75% natural ferment), went through malolactic fermentation, and was aged sur lie for 10 months. Light gold-colored, it reveals a quality perfume of toasty oak, mineral, baking spices, pear, and white peach. Medium-bodied, creamy-textured, and savory, this tasty, balanced Chardonnay will drink well over the next 6-8 years.

Ethos is the top of the Chardonnay pyramid for Ste. Michelle; consistent with other, less expensive bottlings, in its explosion of ripe fruit and generous amount of buttery oak. But here the oak comes from pricey barrels and the steely acids provide a spine that is missing from the others. This is a fine example of Washington Chardonnay, and could be cellared for up to a decade.

Smooth and round, this distinctive and harmonious wine offers spicy, buttery overtones to its pear, quince and citrus flavors, lingering on the refreshing finish.

The 2006 Ethos Chardonnay is a blend of the best barrels from the Canoe Ridge and Cold Creek Vineyards. In this vintage, 82% of the wine was aged in new oak, revealed in the toasty, butterscotch aromatics. The wine has a bit more richness than the single vineyard offerings and its bright acidity suggests that it might evolve for 2-3 years. It has a smooth mouth-feel and all components are in harmony leading to a lengthy finish.
