Wine Advocate 87 points - For thoughts on Chateau Ste Michelle?s uniqueness and recent evolution, consult my extensive April, 2013 text designed to introduce recent tasting notes.Nutmeg, cinnamon, and caramel accent the jellied dark berries in Ste Michelle?s 2009 Merlot Indian Wells, which displays an attractively plush, glycerol-rich mid-palate but finishes with a bit of tannic rusticity and warmth as well as less primary juiciness than the corresponding entry-level bottlings. Plan to enjoy this over the next 2-3 years. (Mar 2013)

Wine maker notes
The Indian Wells Merlot offers ripe berry fruit aromas and jammy flavors typical of Wahluke Slope reds. This is a full bodied style of warm climate Merlot with a round, supple finish. We added Wahluke Slope syrah to enhance the mouthfeel and rich fruit character. I call this my pasta wine!
