Chateau Ste. Michelle 2012 Artist Series Mertiage Columbia Valley

Dark berries, black cherry, violet, licorice and musky hints of coffee and chocolate, with good medicinal reserve. Plush and sweet in the mouth, with firm, integrated acidity keeping the black fruit, bitter chocolate and graphite flavors under wraps today. The wine's powerful spine of acids and tannins should enable it to age slowly and well.

Chateau Ste. Michelle 2012 Cold Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley

Dark ruby-red. Black cherry, licorice, dark chocolate and some sexy oaky high tones on the nose. Suave, oak-influenced flavors of blackcurrant, mocha, espresso and licorice are a bit medicinal in a positive way.

Chateau Ste. Michelle 2012 Ethos Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley

Bright dark ruby. Musky, slightly reduced aromas of cassis, , mocha, blueberry and lilac Wonderfully fine-grained, penetrating flavors of slightly minty dark berries complicated by espresso and bitter chocolate. Very dense but fresh wine; not especially elegant but not at all dry or rustic. A seriously structured, ageworthy Cabernet with big, mouthcoating tannins and excellent length.

Chateau Ste. Michelle 2012 Canoe Ridge Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Horse Heaven Hills

Dark ruby-red. Very sexy oak notes of black raspberry, black cherry, licorice cocoa powder and violet, along with intriguing earth notes and a suggestion of medicinal reserve. At once plush and bright, with the sappy, almost syrupy black fruit and bitter chocolate flavors avoiding heaviness. Salty more than sweet, finishing with a strong spine of building tannins and excellent length.

Chateau Ste. Michelle 2013 Merlot Columbia Valley

There’s immediate appeal to this wine’s plum and cocoa aromas, with Syrah (11%) adding game and smoke. The flavors are fruit-forward with plenty of plushness that make it hard to resist. It doesn’t seem entirely varietally correct but after the second sip all that is forgotten.
