93 points - “Cellar Selection ” Wine Enthusiast - December 15, 2011
Year in and year out, the Cold Creek Vineyard sources perhaps the most ageworthy, perfectly structured Cabernet in the entire Ste. Michelle portfolio. In 2008 the alcohol hits 15%, yet the tight , dense, cassisladen body of the wine is intact, with an appropriate hint of herb. The length and balance once again suggest a wine that has decades of life ahead.
92 points International Wine Cellar - November 16, 2011
Bright red-ruby. Sweet, inviting aromas of black raspberry, mocha, minerals, tobacco and mint complemented by ripe soil tones. Silky on entry, then sexy and seamless in the middle, with concentrated flavors of cassis, black plum and dark chocolate. At once plush and shapely, with ripe acidity giving the wine an impression of refinement. The ripe tannins reach the front teeth on the long finish, with violet and menthol elements providing lift. A lovely, classy cabernet.
“Recommended Holiday Wine Pairing with Beef” The Seattle Times - November 15, 2011
For something extra special, I'd reach for the Chateau Ste. Michelle 2008 Cold Creek Vineyard cabernet sauvignon. Year in and year out, this vineyard's fruit is among the most ageworthy, perfectly structured cabernet in the state.
