Here's a cabernet with sumptuous oak accents, from cedar to caramel and coffee. The structure is oak-driven as well, an ample frame for the dark plum and cassis elements provided by Cold Creek, one of Ste. Michelle's older estate vineyards.

Chateau Ste. Michelle 2013 Ethos Late Harvest Riesling Horse Heaven Hills

At 160g/L residual sugar, this late-harvest wine brings plenty of sweetness with its lightly spritzy marmalade, orange peel and pear aromas and flavors, yet it still retains an appealing sense of lightness and balance as well. The length is impressive.

Chateau Ste. Michelle 2014 Riesling Cold Creek Vineyard Columbia Valley

It may simply be that its extreme youth holds it back and leaves it seemingly short on central fruit, but whatever the reason, this fresh but limited, slightly sweet look at Riesling impresses as being a bit underfilled, and, while it is reasonably well-balanced, its sparse fruity presence leaves it a touch chalky and stiff at the end.

Chateau Ste. Michelle 2014 Gewurztraminer Columbia Valley

Mildly citrusy with accents of orange rind to its blossomy, slightly honeysuckle-like nose, this slightly sweet effort walks a fine line between Gewurztraminer and Riesling and finds a comfortable niche all its own. It is insistently fruity rather than candied and is impeccably balanced with carefully measured acidity providing plenty of brightness and life, and, while a delicious quaff on its own, it is not singularly defined by its sugars and will famously match up with a wide range of Asian dishes.
