Chateau Ste. Michelle - Indian Wells Cabernet Sauvignon

Eastern Washington is one of the world’s greatest regions for winegrowing – not because it is particularly hot (though it certainly can be), but because of the consistency of the climate, with warm cloudless sunny days, and equally important cool nights. These conditions (which really mirror the South Okanagan’s) allow the grapes to slowly and fully ripen, developing complexity and depth of flavour. The desert-cool nights preserve freshness of acidity, crucial for balance in the finished wine. Over the millennia, glaciers arising and passing and the profound Missoula Floods have left layers of gravel soils that Cabernet Sauvignon absolutely adores. A founding pioneer in Washington State, Chateau Ste. Michelle has helped tell the story of wine potential in the state, with stand-bearers like this Cab. There are several blue chip areas like Red Mountain, Walla Walla, the Yakima Valley, and the place where these grapes grow, the hot Wahluke Slope. Dark and inky in the glass, this wine transmits the essence of Cabernet Sauvignon – signature cassis, chocolate, cigar box, and smoky grilled herbs. It’s deeply flavourful, wonderfully pure, and satisfyingly smooth. Everything is simply in the right place – it needs no food at all, but a meatball sandwich or rich lamb shank braise would be fantastic.
