As Meriwether Lewis and William Clark were floating down the Columbia nearly 200 years ago, they gazed at some hills in the eastern Columbia Gorge and thought they looked like an upside-down canoe. Turns out the ridge is a great place to grow grapes, and now Chateau Ste. Michelle is taking full advantage with one stellar release after another. This is bursting with aromas of plums, espresso and pipe tobacco and flavors of rich, ripe fruit. Bold acidity and aggressive tannins give this age-worthiness.
