“#22 - Restaurant Poll: By the Glass ” Wine & Spirits - April 1, 2012
23rd Annual Restaurant Poll: By the Glass - #22 Chateau Ste. Michelle Cold Creek Chardonnay
89 points Wine Spectator - November 30, 2011
89 points. Supple and spicy, with tobacco and cocoa overtones to the green pear flavors, remaining lively on the persistent finish.
88 points International Wine Cellar - November 16, 2011
Full gold-tinged yellow. Lemon, spicy oak and fresh herbs on the nose. At once juicier and deeper than the Indian Wells, with good concentration and fresh acidity. Just a bit warm on the back end but maintains its balance.
90 points The Wine Advocate - August 31, 2011
The 2009 Chardonnay Cold Creek Vineyard was fermented and aged sur lie in 53% new French oak for 9 months. Aromas of pain grille, pencil lead, poached pear, spiced apple and tropical notes lead to a wine in need of another 1-2 years to fully blossom. Still tightly wound but with plenty of material, it will merit its outstanding rating with more bottle age.
“Recommended” Northwest Palate - July 1, 2011
Meyer lemon yellow color with a slight green-gold shadow. Buttery peach and citrus aromas blend with toast and dried herbs to create a prototypical oak-influenced Chardonnay nose. Likewise on the palate, the velutinous mouthfeel delivers succulent peach and butterscotch flavors, accented by notes of lemon balm and toast. Big and supple, the wine has plenty of flavor, but also some heat and a general softness. The finish is long and warm, with a lemony quality. Pair with pan-seared scallops with tagliatelle in a light cream sauce.
