I dream about visiting this winery and region. It is on my list. 🙂 It is the oldest and most acclaimed winery in the Columbia Valley. In my opinion you can never go wrong with purchasing a bottle of Chateau Ste Michelle. So much of a selection including single vineyards. They are consistent and have great quality wines at reasonable prices.
This bottle is made in a New World style with a bit of Syrah, Malbec, and Merlot. The blending of varietals, what a way to make such divine velvety silkiness and smoothness. Dried cherry, vanilla, cassis, plum, blackberry, smoke, mouth filling lushness, great balance with a dry firm tannic finish, (medium bodied).
So dry and meaty that f you pair it with a roast, holy moly what a treat.
They believe “enjoying great wine is a way of life” And this way of life is what I live by.
