Heather Wall 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 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

Natalie's Review

Chateau Ste. Michelle Cabernet Sauvignon 2014, Columbia Valley, Washington, United States: 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. Drink: 2015-2019. 269357 13.50% D 750 mL  $21.95 Score: 92/100.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
