Last tasted by me in its finished blend shortly before bottling, Ste Michelle’s 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Cold Creek Vineyard combines plushness of texture and depth of flavor (dark berries, tobacco, chocolate) with welcome vivacity and saliva-inducing salinity. It should offer fine value over the next half dozen or more years.

Sandalwood, vanilla, nutmeg, tobacco and ripe dark berries make for an alluring aromatic display in Ste Michelle’s 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Cold Creek Vineyard and inform a broad, satiny palate with carob and dark chocolate undertones. Like other of the best 2008s – and in keeping with others from Ste Michelle, this retains delightful freshness of berry juiciness and introduces a saliva-inducing salinity to its sustained finish such as you’ll find too seldom in a big-bodied North American Cabernet, much less one at this price. Plan to enjoy this outstanding value over the nest 6-8 years.

This workhorse vineyard supplies grapes to a wide variety of wines across the entire Ste. Michelle portfolio, but the vineyard-designated wines are much more limited, and they’re often the best of show. As the alcohol reaches 15.5%, this selection is sappy, dense and a bit warm. There’s plenty of fruit flavor and concentration, but it’s difficult to pair such a blockbuster with food.

A big step up from their very good Columbia Valley Cabernet, this single vineyard bottling from Chateau Ste Michelle is worth the premium. Although it’s more concentrated, its real virtue lies in the plethora of flavors it delivers. To complement the black fruit, there’s minerality and hints of earth that impart a savory component. The tannins are quite suave and polished, making it a terrific choice now for an important dinner.
“13th Annual Platinum Judging Platinum ” Wine Press Northwest - January 1, 2013
This is one of the oldest vineyards in Washington, planted in the early 1970s, then replanted after the 1978-79 winter that knocked vines to the ground. It's in a warm area north of the Yakima Valley and is one of winemaker Bob Bertheau's favorite locations. This cab offers abundant aromas of violets, black currants and blueberries, followed by rich, deep flavors of espresso, chocolate-covered cherries and caramel. It is smooth across the palate, and there's even a bit of perceived sweetness from barrel aging.
