Chateau Ste. Michelle 2013 Riesling Columbia Valley

Clean and fresh, this juicy wine carries a bit of fruit sweetness, but the flavors are tilted towards minerality rather than fruitiness. It's wonderfully refreshing, with a mix of citrus rind, melon and white peach working into an extended, palate-cleansing finish.

Chateau Ste. Michelle 2013 Pinot Gris Columbia Valley

A return to the 100% varietal Pinot Gris, this is done in a vivid, leesy style, with excellent texture and depth of flavor. Clean and fresh herb, celery, jicama and melon flavors abound, just hinting at white peach at the far end of its gentle ripeness. The flavor penetration and over crisp definition are very fine.

Chateau Ste. Michelle 2012 Indian Wells Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley

For a few dollars more than the regular CSM Cabernet, the Indian Wells delivers extra density and complexity. It hold firm, dark fruits and is slightly grainy, but well-ripened tannins carry the wine, and it's less dependent upon oak treatments and flavors of vanilla and cream. Persistent and substantial, it offers good value, and often sells for less than listed price.

Chateau Ste. Michelle 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley

CSM's mainstream Cabernet Sauvignon now carries a "100% vinifera rootstock" designation - surely a first for any American winery. It displays more structure than some of the other, similarly priced offering from the Northwest's largest winery group. With good focus and length, its a mix of plum and berry fruit, nicely set in a frame of toast, coffee and charred wood, makes it a surefire, all-purpose medium-bodied red.
