Chateau Ste. Michelle Merlot Reserve

Wine Details





Winemaker's Notes

(From 2000 Vintage) Inviting aromas of black fruit blend with vanilla, violet and toasty oak notes. On the palate the Reserve Merlot is rich and full with mouth-filling flavors of cherry, vanilla and allspice. This wine is well structured with firm tannins leading to a lingering carob finish.
