“Very Good ” KensWineGuide.com - November 7, 2011
This opaque and almost black colored Merlot from Washington State opens with a mild blackberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, soft, and easy going. The flavor profile is a mild black currant with hints for gentle boysenberry. There is a touch of integrated oak and mild mineral notes that show towards the end. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins linger slightly. This wine would be perfect with a big and juicy Angus bacon cheeseburger.
“Wines for Thanksgiving” Epicurious.com - November 4, 2011
But maybe you want the slightly more intense blackberry fruit of the Chateau Ste. Michelle Indian Wells Merlot 2009 ($18). A touch more tannin, but not much. Either way, they're easygoing enough to play nice all around.
87 points - “Good Value” Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine - November 1, 2011
If not one for drama and lacking the sheer richness of its high-ticket cousins, this nicely made Merlot is spot on in fruit and is at once both substantial and supple in feel. Its themes of black cherries persist past a bit of youthfully gruff tannin, and, if sure to be smoothed by service with a well-marbled rib eye, it is priceworthy wine that will surely improve with keeping.
