Chateau Ste. Michelle 2002 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (Columbia Valley (WA))

A success in the still-improving red wine lineup, the 2002 reserve is built upon grapes from the winery's Cold Creek vineyard—its most substantial, ageworthy grapes—and has a welcome precision and focus missing from the rest of the lineup. Good acid and a fine-tuned nerve structure, the tart fruit carries notes of leaf, anise and gravel, with green tea tannins through the long finish. 1,000 cases made. Paul Gregutt
