Chateau Ste Michelle Cabernet Sauvignon 2009, Columbia Valley, WA - $13

I purchased this wine for $13/bottle at Western Beverages - it retails for $15/bottle on the winery's website. It is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 3% Syrah, 2% Malbec, 2% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot.

Aroma - dark fruit, dark cocoa
Taste - dark fruit, dark cocoa, strong tannins

Good, not as smooth as the Charles Krug we just had, but good for the price. We had it after dinner with dark chocolate-covered blueberries.
