Chateau Ste. Michelle Indian Wells Merlot 2010

SKU 885866079120


The Indian Wells Merlot offers ripe berry fruit aromas and jammy flavors typical of Wahluke Slope reds. This is a full bodied style of warm climate Merlot with a round, supple finish. We added Wahluke Slope syrah to enhance the mouthfeel and rich fruit character. I call this my pasta wine!

Wine EnthusiastToasty and firm, this substantial Merlot is based in powerful cassis flavor, with muscular tannins and a solid foundation of earth and extract.

Wine SpectatorFirm in texture, displaying a hard edge to the smoky berry, green olive and hay aromas and flavors, which linger against well-modulated tannins. Best after 2014. 45,000 cases made.
