This terrific Washington Cabernet blends French sensibilities with New World energy and vigour. Classic Cabernet with blackberry and cassis, mocha-espresso aromas from the oak and very balanced. Full-bodied and smooth. This Chateau Ste. Michelle Cabernet also includes small amount of Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Syrah in the blend. Pair with a pepper steak.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: lamb Bolognese, grilled New York strip loin, barbecued ribs in sauce, hard cheese, hearty meat dishes.

Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Full -bodied with a bushel of red and black berries, black plum, leather, graphite, sweet spices and youthful but polishing tannins. Acidity is fresh and cleansing while the length is long on a fruit driven finish. There's lots to love about this red wine from Washington but most especially the excellent performance at this price - $22. This is a buy 2 wine. Enjoy tonight with your favourite red meats or hearty beef stew.
Tasted: November 2016
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Some of the best of Washington State in a glass. This Cabernet Sauvignon shows interesting fruit concentration and complexity. The aromas are quite diverse from earthy forest floor notes to ripe berry and plum fruit, and from flinty/graphite minerality to welcoming sweet baking spices. Flavours on the palate are equally alluring. Flavours include ripe berries, cocoa, anise and wet stone/graphite minerality. This cab is full bodied with polished tannins, moderate acidity, and a harmonious mouthfeel. Enjoy with flame grilled sirloins. Tasted July 2015. @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
