62. Chateau Ste. Michelle 2012 Cold Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley, $40:

Chateau Ste. Michelle-2012-Cold Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon LabelCold Creek Vineyard, planted back in the 1970s, has long been the flagship for Chateau Ste. Michelle’s finest red wines — and some whites as well. The 2012 fits comfortably into that tradition, leading with cherry and blackberry notes and restrained oak. In the mouth, sweet, ripe black cherries and blackberries take over, settling into a lengthy finish of dark chocolate and refined tannins.

Rating: Outstanding!
