Chateau Ste. Michelle 2010 Horse Heaven Vineyard Sauvignon BlancBest Buy! This breezy site in Paterson, Wash., that looks across the Columbia River into Oregon supplies much of the Sauvignon Blanc for Chateau Ste. Michelle. It presents abundant aromas of lychee and grapefruit, along with a pinch of white pepper and a tiny whiff of smoke. Those who enjoy a dry Gewürztraminer should delight with its continuation of grapefruit flavors, backed by peach, slate, more lychee and lingering juiciness. Serve with mussels influenced by cilantro or thyme.

Rating: Excellent.

Production: 40,000 cases

Alcohol: 13%
