Chateau Ste Michelle Cold Creek Cabernet Sauvignon
Rich and ripe, this dense, dry red offers sweet, somewhat jammy currant and blackberry flavors, with a touch of honey. Shows breadth and length, but needs time to settle down. Drink now through 2015. 7,200 cases made.
89 Points Wine Spectator
Proprietor Jean Guyon and consultant Dr. Alain Raynaud continue to produce a wine that over-performs its humble pedigree. The dense blue/purple-tinged 2009 boasts abundant amounts of blueberry and black currant fruit intermixed with graphite and forest floor notes. Full-bodied, rich, and pure, it is ideal for drinking during its first decade or life.
90-92 Points Wine Advocate
Brooding and tannic, this Cab is hard to appreciate now. But it’s massively rich and concentrated with blackberry and cassis flavors, and the overall balance suggests aging. Drink from 2017 and beyond.
