Chateau Ste. Michelle’s Artist Series red wine celebrates the inspired collaboration between artisan winemaking and fine art. The 2013 label and case feature the work of Northwest sculptor Cameron Anne Mason, who, finding inspiration in the beauty and fragility of Madrone trees, creates fabric sculptures that echo the trees’ rough bark peeling away to reveal layers of brilliant orange and green.
“The Artist Series is the first wine I blend from our amazing vineyards in Columbia Valley as I strive for elegance, complexity with underlying Washington state power. With this warmer vintage, we selected a few cooler sites to add balance, richness and layers—the ultimate goal for the Artist Series blend. Crafted from four varieties in a beautiful, plush vintage, the blend exudes perfect Washington state structure with desired elegance.” —Bob Bertheau, Winemaker
