Sourced from warm vineyard sites, Indian Wells wines showcase a signature fruit-forward, mouth-filling style. Intensely ripe and boldly flavored, this Cabernet is decadent and fruit driven with a lush texture and concentrated blackberry and black cherry flavors.
The 2016 Chateau Ste Michelle Indian Wells Cabernet Sauvignon begins with a fabulous aroma full of ripe berries along with plenty of spice, licorice, vanilla and more. Taking a sip reveals smooth, vanilla-soaked Cab goodness. It also features plenty of delicious secondary notes of spice, herbs, chocolate and more. If you enjoy really well done oak influence in your Cab, this wine is for you. It ends dry and long.
This is really delicious stuff and consistently good every year!
