Cabernet Sauvignon is a standout variety from Washington, with silky tannins, rich complexity and concentrated fruit. That’s why our Columbia Valley Cabernet is the perfect choice to carry the nostalgic banner of our 50th anniversary. Raise a glass and help us celebrate the next 50 years!
We craft our Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon to highlight concentrated Washington red fruit in an accessible style. One of the warmest seasons in decades, 2014 in eastern Washington was ideal for growing Cabernet grapes. This is an inviting red wine with plenty of complexity and structure with silky tannins. It’s also very versatile with food.
Crafted in a fresh, soft style with bright apple and sweet citrus fruit character with subtle spice and oak nuances. We blend Chardonnay grapes from vineyards throughout Washington’s Columbia Valley to make this a complex, interesting wine. The sur lie aging gives it an appealing richness.
We craft this wine to be our complex yet approachable Merlot. The wine offers aromas of black cherry, leather and spice with layers of rich dark red fruit flavors and a long, smooth, sweet finish. A touch of Syrah adds a jammy fruit character.
The Chateau Ste. Michelle Dry Riesling is a dry, refreshing style of Riesling with beautiful fruit flavors, crisp acidity and an elegant finish. It offers inviting sweet citrus aromas and flavors. This is an incredibly versatile food wine and my favorite with oysters.
Slightly sweeter style than our Columbia Valley Riesling but still shows the classic Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling character. It offers rich flavors of ripe peaches balanced with crisp Washington Riesling acidity. It’s like a bowl of fruit in a glass! This wine is a great match with Thai food.
A fan favorite, this Gewürztraminer is a flavorful wine with bright, expressive fruit and clove spice. This is a lush style of Gewürztraminer with intense floral character, yet it still maintains the grape’s natural crisp acidity.
The Columbia Valley Syrah is a soft, jammy Syrah made in an approachable and fruit forward style. This is an enjoyable, easy-to-drink red. A long, warm 2013 growing season in Washington resulted in beautifully ripe and balanced Syrahs of ideal complexity.
Crisp and refreshing, the 2014 Sauvignon Blanc offers bright fruit character of melons and herbs. Stainless steel fermentation preserves Sauvignon Blanc’s delicate varietal character. Try pairing this bright Washington white wine with oysters.
Our Pinot Gris style falls between the lighter Italian Pinot Grigio and the richer, rounder Pinot Gris from Alsace. The Chateau Ste. Michelle Pinot Gris offers fresh flavors of juicy pear, melon and a hint of spice. One of the warmest seasons on record in Washington State, 2015 saw optimal ripening across all wine varieties, including Pinot Gris.
