Wine: Chateau Ste Michelle 2011 Indian Wells Red Blend
The Indian Wells Red Blend is an easy drinking red blend from warmer climate vineyards. The wine reflects the rich, round powerful style of Washington fruit, highlighting eight varietals. It is a true example of the art of blending. The wine offers jammy boysenberry flavors from the Syrah with a luscious backbone from the Merlot. This would be a great match with barbecue ribs.

 
Oh my! I loved this. LOVED. My husband wasn’t a big fan – it was too much of a Red wine to him – but I loved it. Hubby simply tolerated it…and considering that I loved it, toleration is perfectly fine as long as I don’t hear any complaints. 😀

The initial smell of the wine was…simply amazing. It smelled rich, exotic and complex – I couldn’t even begin to say what it could have smelled like. And the first taste…so nice and rich and bold.

I paired the Indian Wells Red blend with a simple meal: a nice medium rare steak, crisp green-beans and a salad (paleo, you know). Delicious.

I certainly plan on purchasing more of Chateau Ste Michelle’s Indian Wells Red Blend.
