Chateau Ste Michelle Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 750mL  WE91 Points-Wine Enthusiast,  JS93 Points-James Suckling

The smallest American Viticultural Area in size, Red Mountain wines are anything but diminutive. Hot, dry conditions and weak soils produce clusters of small berries with intensity and focused flavors. The wine is crafted to showcase the ripe fruit characteristics, incredible aromatics and concentrated tannins that reflect Washington state’s warmest growing region.-Winemaker

Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

WE91 Points-Wine Enthusiast
Aromas of dark roasted coffee bean, vanilla, sautéed herbs and dark chocolate lead to a palate that shows more structure right now than fruit. It needs time to show its best but has it. Give it some time in the cellar. Best after 2024.
Cellar Selection
JS93 Points-James Suckling
Notes of dark plums, mulberries, peppercorns and baking spices. It’s full-bodied with firm, grainy tannins. Structured and serious with a creamy texture and layers of dark fruit and wood spice. Ample, flavorful finish with some length. Drink or hold
RP92 Points-Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Rested in over 60% new French oak, the delightfully round and rich 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Mountain bursts from the glass with ripe and juicy fruit aromas along with notes of dusty chocolate and purple flowers that overflow the glass with baking spice elements. Medium to full-bodied, the wine is open and expressive with flavors of blackberry jus, juicy plum, hints of sage and thyme, with cocoa nib and vanilla tones across the mid-palate. Concluding with a balanced structure and lifting tannins that linger on the palate with a soft rockiness, the wine offers a delicious experience at a great price. Well done.
JD92 Points-Jeb Dunnuck
Coming from a handful of sites, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Mountain is 100% Cabernet aged in 62% new French oak, with a splash of new American oak as well. It offers lots of camphor, spicy oak, and spice notes to go with medium-bodied richness, beautiful darker cherry and berry fruits, ripe tannins, and a focused, balanced, classic texture. A terrific Cabernet, it will evolve for 15 years or more.
