Chateau Ste. Michelle 2014 Pinot Gris Columbia Valley

Simple, forward and thoroughly delicious, this mouthwatering white has a leesy filigree framing scents of bright citrus and crisp apple. There's spring water clarity to the flavors, the texture given contour by a mineral tinge. Buy it by the case for summer sipping.

Chateau Ste. Michelle 2013 Cold Creek Vineyard Chardonnay Columbia Valley

2013 was the warmest vintage this 40-year old vineyard had ever seen. Light aromas of toasty spices, corn silk and peach lead to a textured mouthfeel, with drawn-out stone fruit flavors. It’s a standout wine from a challenging year.

Chateau Ste. Michelle 2012 Ethos Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley

The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Ethos reserve is elegant and polished, with beautiful and classy notes of cassis, black raspberries, spring flower and crushed violets. It's medium to full-bodied, supple and seamless, with slightly more finesse and elegance than the Artist Series, but a similar level of depth and richness. It shows lots of minerality on the finish, has excellent balance and should evolve nicely for 15 years or more.

Chateau Ste. Michelle 2013 Ethos Reserve Chardonnay Columbia Valley

Up with some of the best Chardonnay's from Washington, the 2013 Chardonnay Ethos Reserve has impressive, flinty minerality to go with lots of white flowers, apple blossom and hints of toastiness. Medium-bodied, classically styled, with a slight Burgundian feel to its acid and texture, it has solid richness and a clean finish. Coming from the estate's Canoe Ridge and Cold Creek vineyards and aged in 36% new French oak (the balance is once and twice used), it needs 6 months or so of bottle age and will drink nicely through 2020.

Chateau Ste. Michelle 2012 Artist Series Meritage Columbia Valley

I was blown away by the quality of the 2012 Artist Series Meritage, and this Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend has rock-star notes of black raspberries, cassis, chocolate, smoked earth and creamy licorice. Full-bodied, concentrated and seamless, with no shortage of mid-palate depth or tannin, drink it anytime over the coming 15 years or so.

Also impressive, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Cold Creek Vineyard comes from vines planted in 1973 and a south-facing, warm site located in the Columbia Valley...it has outstanding notes of black raspberries, smoked meats, a hint of minerality and ground herbs.

Chateau Ste.Michelle 2013 Cold Creek Vineyard Chardonnay Columbia Valley

I thought the 2013 Chardonnay Cold Creek Vineyard was outstanding, and this barrel-aged Chardonnay offers lots of buttered peach, white flowers and a touch of citrus in its medium-bodied, clean, rounded and elegant style. It has beautiful purity, plenty of richness and good overall freshness, and should drink nicely for a year or so.

Chateau Ste. Michelle 2012 Canoe Ridge Estate Merlot Horse Heaven Hills

The 2012 Merlot Canoe Ridge Estate Vineyard, which has 10% of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend, is a fruit-forward, plump, earthy, medium-bodied red that gives up notions of black cherries, spice, earth and hints of truffle. It saw 16 months in 54% new French and American oak and should drink nicely for 3-4 years.

Chateau Ste. Michelle 2013 Mimi Chardonnay Horse Heaven Hills

Great Northwest Wine reviewed the Chateau Ste. Michelle 2013 Mimi Chardonnay this week giving it an outstanding rating.
...this wine strikes an impeccable and complex balance of fruit, oak and acidity, which is formed with 76 percent of the lot undergoing six months of surlie aging in French oak and the rest fermented in stainless steel. It leads to aromas of light butter and fresh-baked bread backed with fruitiness of a Mango Lassi, Meyer lemon, pear, white pepper and coriander. The bold entry brings delicious loads of juicy tropical fruit along with pear.
