From the producer:
The 2020 Artist Series Red Wine is elegant and shows balanced flavors of black cherry and blackberry with notes of violets, baking spice and cedar. The flavors persist with added earthy complexity of silt with a slate finish. The fine-grained tannins will ensure this wine develops nicely over the next 10+ years.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Chateau Ste. Michelle’s Artist Series Red Wine celebrates the inspired collaboration between artisan winemaking and fine art. The 2020 vintage labels showcase artist Junko Yamamoto, whose focus is on oil painting. She also engages in printmaking and produces mixed-media installations, focusing most recently on soft sculpture mobile installations. Yamamoto was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan, and left to study abroad at 16 years old, moving to the U.S. In 1999, she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, cum laude from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle.
