Greetings From CT Wine Authority

This week's featured wines are Chateau Ste. Michelle Harvest Select Riesling and Charles & Charles Volume II Red from Columbia Valley, Washington.  Although relatively young now, the Washington wine industry is growing fast, with over 36,000 acres of vines planted.  We are excited to share these quality Washington wines with our customers.  Stop in this Saturday to sample our Washington wine picks!

Chateau Ste. Michelle is Washington's first founded winery (1934) and claims some of the oldest and highest acclaimed vineyards in the state.  Chateau Ste. Michelle is home to many award winning wines such as their Riesling, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.  Our featured white wine is a sweeter style Riesling displaying many of the unique characteristics found in Columbia Valley wines.

Our red feature, Charles & Charles Volume II Red, is the first vintage of a collaboration between renowned winemakers Charles Smith (of K Vinters, Magnificent Wine Co. & Charles Smith Wines) and Charles Bieler (of Three Thieves/Rebel Wine Co. and Bieler Pere et Fils).  The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Syrah, all of the fruit coming from the Wahluke Slope AVA in Columbia Valley.  This wine is a great find delivering tremendous bang for your buck!

The arid northern climate of Washington wine country in the east of the state is perfectly suited to the Cabernet and Riesling varietals These wines are known for perfectly complex and concentrated flavors, dominated by lush berry flavors in the reds and surprisingly crisp, dry, and fruity  "cold weather" white grapes like Riesling.

Wine Spectator: Polished and generous, with a green olive edge to the dark berry flavors, lingering softly. Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Drink now. 10,500 cases made. -HS

Wine Maker's Notes: The 2007 vintage in Washington's Columbia Valley had fantastic growing conditions and cool, dry weather for harvest. Charles Bieler and Charles Smith teamed up to bring you their first vintage of Charles & Charles Red - 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Syrah. All the fruit is grown in the Wahluke Slope AVA (Columbia Valley) by the Milbrandt family. The Cabernet Sauvignon was aged in 1-3 year old French oak barrels and the Syrah was fermented and aged in stainless steel.

Tasting Notes: The wine is a dark cherry red, with a brooding nose of blackberry, cranberry, tobacco and sweet oak. The fruit carries through on the palate where you also find great texture, soft tannins and a long finish. more

Wine Maker's Notes: A northerly latitude gives the Columbia Valley roughly two more hours of sunlight daily during the peak-growing season than California, increasing the region's ability to ripen fruit. Our new Harvest Select Riesling is made in a slightly sweeter style than our Columbia Valley Riesling but still shows the elements of classic Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling. It offers beautiful crisp Washington Riesling character with rich flavors of ripe pears and peaches. The fresh fruit and decadent character is balanced with crisp acidity to keep the wine in harmony. This is a perfect patio sipping wine or would be a great match with Thai food. Enjoy! -Bob Bertheau, Head Winemaker
