Chateau Ste. Michelle, Cold Creek Vineyard Merlot, Columbia Valley, WA, 2015

Paired With Sliced Filet with Cippollini Onions, Wild Mushrooms and Fig Essence

Merlot is back, and Chateau Ste. Michelle in Washington State is leading the way. Made from 40-year-old vines, Cold Creek is lush, round and velvety, with compote-like flavors of baked blueberry and fig. The ideal pairing is a steak with similar flavor, like The Capital Grille’s artistic preparation of Sliced Filet with Fig Essence.
