Best of the West for $25 or Less- previously scored 90 points
STLToday.com (St. Louis) - March 21, 2012
Chateau Ste. Michelle is Washington's oldest winery, and its Indian Wells Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has been well-received in the wine press as an outstanding value. This is a delicious, fruit-forward cabernet that's soft, easy to drink and has a silky mouthfeel. It's a rich, medium- to full-bodied wine that's aromatic and tastes of juicy black cherries, blackberries and vanilla from oak aging. Although it's a little high in alcohol at 14.5 percent, the wine is well-balanced and ends with a long and graceful finish.
“Double Must Buy” Times Record News - March 14, 2012
Have you ever found a wine, or a certain area where wines are produced, and just can't figure out why they don't get more credit than they do? That is exactly how I feel about red wines coming from Washington State. In my opinion they are the Rodney Dangerfield of the wine world, "They don't get any respect." I just had the opportunity to try the 2010 Chateau Ste. Michelle Indian Wells Cabernet Sauvignon, and I have to tell you, this is a fantastic wine... Beautiful in the glass with its dark garnet ring followed by big, bold aromas and flavors of wild raspberry, ripe blackberry and cocoa, this wine finishes with a super smooth finish of toasty oak and a hint of clove and cedar. This wine is extremely balanced and would pair well with a medium-rare rib-eye steak hot off the grill, or would be fantastic with a big dish of stuffed peppers and wild rice.
“Very Good ” KensWineGuide.com - March 6, 2012
This opaque and very dark purple colored Cabernet is very easy to drink and an impressive value Cab. It opens with a black raspberry and musty old oak bouquet with a hint of dark chocolate. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, and rather smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty ripe black cherry with notes of blueberry and a hint of dark chocolate. The finish is dry and its fine tannins make it very food friendly. I would pair this wine with Theresa's meatloaf.
“Recommended Cabernet ” Vancouver Sun - March 2, 2012
Washington’s Columbia valley is home to the Château Ste. Michelle Cabernet Sauvignon Indian Wells Vineyard 2009. Look for menthol, cassis, black berry, tobacco, black olive, cedar and vanilla aromas with a touch of saddle leather. The attack is dry and supple. The palate is juicy with light tannins and more black berry, mocha, cedar, savoury, meaty licorice flavours. Good fruit and suppleness with a warm finish. Solid value from just south of the border.
