Full bodied and smooth, Chateau St. Michelle has another winner in their 2012 Indian Wells Red Blend. The wine is built around Merlot, Syrah, and Grenache, with three other red grapes adding shading. There are aromas of rose petals, cassis, and cherry, along with notes of vanilla and black tea, as they introduce a big, powerful, yet supple wine with velvety tannins and generous fruit character. This wine is normally $14.99 at Costco FO, but is priced at $11.99 through July 4th. This is an excellent value to add to your collection or just to enjoy over the 4th!
