    February 6, 2011 - This is a medium body cab that was quite good. Cherry and oak fragrances and found the finish quite good. Suspect this could have been in the cellar for several more years contrary to the CT drinkability report.

    March 5, 2008 - Good dark color. Mostly oak and cherry on the nose - at least it SMELLS like cab. The flavor was a bit austere, with oaky tannins dominant over the plum and cherry. Fairly high tannins and fairly long finish. Ste. Michelle is a very dependable producer, but I don't like this as much as their Riesling. All in all, ok value, would be great for cooking (and drinking while you cook).

    March 4, 2008 - Top 1/4 of cork fell apart and I expected the wine to be undrinkable. Was I wrong. Medium-bodied with a bit of cherry on the nose followed by dark fruit. Oak prevalent along with a bit of cedar. This was given to be as a gift and I was quite surprised!

    January 1, 2008 - About what I expected for the price. I like Chateau Ste Michelle wines overall and this one does not disappoint, but don't look for big things. The color was a medium plum with little depth, which was equally evident in the mild nose. Mineral overtones were prominent with a splash of blueberry. Medium finish. Decent QPR.
