2020 Chateau Ste. Michelle Cold Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley, USA (750ml)
One of Washington’s oldest & most acclaimed vineyards. Character builds season after season in the growth rings of the old woody vines. Sun-drenched growing conditions with low rainfall result in small berries with full-bodied flavors. This Cabernet has broad-shouldered structure, concentrated fruit characters and deep color.
The wine’s rich cassis and floral lilac aromas meld with notes of graphite and shoe polish, which I quite enjoy. Blackberry compote, lime and black tea flavors are ably backed by sturdy tannins and elevated acidity. Seamless stuff, with a fairly long finish.
