Chateau Ste. Michelle Indian Wells Merlot 2011
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! Pair with hearty pastas, arroz con pollo, and flank steak salad.
