Tasting Notes
“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.

Winemaker’s Notes
The Indian Wells Cabernet is our warm climate ripe, jammy “New World” style of Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine offers dark fruit aromas and flavors. Syrah added an enhanced richness and concentration to the wine.

Other Notes:
Ripe grapes were destemmed and sorted with a cutting-edge grape receiving and separation system designed to gently deliver fruit to the fermenters, allowing for pure varietal expression and soft mouthfeel.

Food Pairings: Stuffed peppers, bleu cheese, duck, beef, veal, lamb, dark chocolate

    Lively and focused, with expressive black cherry and bacon fat aromas and sleek blackberry and spice flavors that take on tannins toward the finish. Drink now through 2021. From Washington.

    The aromas bring notes of macerated cherry, exotic spice, dusty earth, dried herb, vanilla, mushroom and dried black currant. Dense blue and black fruit flavors follow, with a firm lick of tannins backing it up.
