|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
|Brand||Chateau Ste. Michelle|
James SucklingThis has a composed and compact feel with good depth and density. Aromas and flavors of very deep plums and blackberries with assertive and savory oak spices and meaty nuances. Succulent tannins, too. Powerful and fresh. Drink or hold.
Jeb DunnuckI loved the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Cold Creek Vineyard (100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 22 months in barrel). It has a still youthful purple color as well as plush, forward notes of smoky black fruits, licorice, tobacco, and barbecued meats. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and beautifully textured, it will keep for another decade, although there's no need to hold off. It's a smoking value.
DecanterThe vines which produced this 2014 Cold Creek Cabernet were actually planted by the great Andre Tchelistcheff in 1973. They’re on loam, sand and gravel soils and take advantage of extreme shifts of diurnal temperatures to lock in acidity. It’s a windy site that gives smaller, thick-skinned berries, borne out by the tannic, dense character of this wine. It's creamy, plush and full, and uppermost are blue and black berry fruits with a lick of pipe tobacco and woodsmoke. Though present, the acidity is perhaps drowned out a tad by the big structure, yet this has plenty of personality with a good future.
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.
