A lovely wine with lots of crushed black cherry and berries, with some chocolate and fresh tobacco. A lovely wine that always hits the mark in terms of price/quality. 90 Points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
This bottling was chosen as the anniversary wine for the winery, which is celebrating their 50th in 2017. The blend is 87% Cab Sauv, with 4% Syrah, 1% Malbec, 6% Merlot, 1% Cab Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot.
Bright ruby colour.
Pliable and soft. This wine is delicate and the aromatics are subtle. Look for aromas of cherry candy, cranberry, sage, rosemary, charcoal, cassis, and new leather.
In classic Ste. Michelle style, the wine is less of an aggressive fruit bomb than a lot of similarly marketed wines. Theirs has a modest 13.5% alcohol and is much more about balance.
Flavours of cranberry, cassis, and chocolate initially. Good acidity, supple, and moderate tannins. Again, not overly aggressive. Slight herbal edge that Ch.Ste. Michelle is notable for comes out with a bit of breathing time. More rosemary, sage, and green pepper.
Delicious pairing for beef carpaccio and summer greens.
