    February 17, 2019 - Outstanding effort from Mike Januik and Ste. Michelle. Dark opaque color with some garnet at the edge. Still very round and full bodied. Nice cherry notes. Nice fine tannins to provide balance. Still has plenty of life left.

    May 16, 2011 - I hope we are all drinking the same 1993 meritage by Ch. Ste. Michelle, because mine was exceptional. (Dale Chihuly on the label) Ruby-garnet color with orange-brown edges. This looks like an aged wine but does not smell much like one: plums, mushrooms, white pepper, earth, cedar notes; a bit shy but nice. More cabernet than merlot. Very pleasant on the palate, with excellent weight. Fruit acids are holding up amazingly well along with oak flavors. None of the mustiness or cooked-fruit flavors that you might expect. Finish is very dry and surprisingly tannic at first, but it lenghthens and lengthens. An excellent wine by any standard, and unbelievable for its age.

    December 21, 2009 - Decanted for 1 hour before drinking. Medium red with bricking on the edges. Soft, moderately fragrant aroma. On the lighter side to drink, well balanced. The tannins are gone by now and some of the fruit as well. Nothing remarkable but a pleasant drink, and one that will compliment food. Good if you want a wine that is happy to play second fiddle to the food. Drink now.

    October 29, 2008 - 2nd bottle with same results. On the nose, sour cherry carmel smashed on a wet 2x4. This wine is a bit bubbly. Some nice sour cherry up front under too much oak. Then I get some of what I call fingernial polish with a flat finish as though you got to the end of you Haagen-Dazs bar and just kept sucking on the wood stick too long. It is the fingernail polish aspect that really downgrades this for me.
