Chateau Ste. Michelle Cold Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
|United States, Washington, Columbia Valley
|Chateau Ste. Michelle
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.
This tightly structured version offers modest flavors of blackberry, cedar and dusty mocha that are framed by broad tannins. Drink now through 2028. 12,000 cases made.
