Chateau Ste. Michelle Cold Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
|Brand||Chateau Ste. Michelle|
Wine AdvocateI loved the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Cold Creek Vineyard, and it's 100% varietal from their estate vineyard in the Columbia Valley. Chocolate, smoked earth, violets, graphite and black and blue fruits all emerge from this beauty and it has plenty of mid-palate depth, good concentration and a great finish.
Wine EnthusiastBarrel-forward aromas of vanilla and toast are in front of herb and cherry. The palate brings a sense of polish and appeal, with the tannins bringing some squeeze on the finish.
Wine SpectatorTaut and chewy, with modest blackberry and green tea accents, framed by gritty tannins on the finish. Best after 2018. 13,033 cases made.
