2013 Chateau Ste. Michelle Ethos Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley, USA (750 mL)
"One of the standouts in the lineup is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Ethos Reserve, which comes from a number of sites in the Columbia valley and incorporates 10% Merlot. Aged in 53% new French and American oak, this full-bodied, rich, unctuously textured and concentrated Cabernet is loaded with notions of currants, blueberries, smoked herbs, and licorice. Possessing low acidity, a plump, sexy profile and no hard edges, it can be enjoyed anytime over the coming decade." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 93 pts
"This has boldly expressed ripe dark berries and some autumnal leafy notes. Follows through to a palate that has assertive tannin in a punchy style. Dark fruits. Fine but sturdy tannins close it out." James Suckling, 93 pts
The Ethos Reserve Cabernet is crafted to showcase the power and richness of Washington fruit combined with Old World elegance. The 40-year-old Cold Creek Vineyard contributes to the blend which provides the wine's power and structure. This is the most complex of the Chateau’s Cabernets and offers layers of ripe blueberry fruit with silky tannins.
Pairs well with prime rib, bleu cheese, and chocolate desserts.
Blend: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot
