CH. STE. MICHELLE HORSEHEAVEN SAUVIGNON BLANC, 2008

This Sauvignon Blanc from Horse Heaven Vineyard delivers aromas of citrus and green apple with lively herb spice notes. Partial stainless steel fermentation to preserve the Sauvignon Blanc’s vibrant varietal character and fresh, crisp quality. For me, this wine represents the classic Washington style of Sauvignon Blanc with a crisp citrus character and a soft mouthfeel.

CH. STE. MICHELLE EROICA RIESLING, 2007

Eroica is the fruit of a winemaking collaboration between Chateau Ste. Michelle’s Bob Bertheau and famed Mosel winemaker Ernst Loosen.This Eroica shows the crisp acidity of the 2007 vintage. The wine delivers mandarin orange and sweet lime aromas and flavors with subtle mineral notes. The cooler September, along with selecting fruit from higher elevation and cooler sites, contributed to the mouth-watering acidity balanced by beautiful Washington Riesling fruit. 92 points  Wine Advocate – October 31, 2009

CH. STE. MICHELLE COLD CREEK CABERNET SAUVIGNON, 2006
