Chateau Ste. Michelle 2006 Indian Wells Cabernet Sauvignon (Columbia Valley (WA))

Less exciting than the Indian Wells Merlot, the Cabernet seems stiff, austere and constrained. The addition of 10% Syrah may have added some spice and sweet berry, but the underlying Cabernet fruit seems tannic and slightly stemmy, and the wine doesn't quite knit together. After the first hit of berry flavored fruit, it turns hard and tannic. Paul Gregutt
