Michelle in 1973, is a prized vineyard for winemaker Bob Bertheau. Italian herbs and a hint of mint lead off this Cab, followed by blackberry and cherry notes on the nose. In the mouth, Cold Creek Vineyard displays why it’s among the Northwest’s finest, with black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, a bit of black pepper and elegant tannins, followed by a farewell of dark chocolate and cherry.
