Winemaker's Notes:

Plump aromas of ripe cherry, red berry and jam fill the nose, followed by notes of luscious berry sweetness on the palate. This textured wine with moderate tannins ends with a round finish.

Fruity, not much structure. Good pizza wine or for a hearty stew.

I'm a big fan of Columbia Crest & Chateau Ste. Michelle. Their wines are always spot-on for the variety or the blend in the bottle. This is juicy and darkly-fruited with blackberry & black currant at center stage. Evergreen notes dance in the background. A satisfying wine that offers super value.

Great for the price. Intense with tart berry notes and a hint of toasted vanilla flavor.

Delicious deep berry flavor that lingers, a touch of oak, chocolate and great aroma

It is interesting to compare this 2010 Two Vines Cab to their previous efforts. This one lacks intensity of the 2008 and 2009. Plus, it is shorter on fruit. A simple wine. Some cherry in the nose and some cacao --- 84 rating..

Exhibiting big, bold flavors, our Grand Estates Cabernet Sauvignon highlights these classic characteristics while softening the edges just enough to call attention to delicate aromas and fruit complexity. Armoas and flavors of black cherry, plum and spice on the mid-palate are complemented by smooth tannins on the finish.

From the winery, 'This minimally oaked Cabernet Sauvignon offers fruit-forward aromas and flavors of slight cherry and blueberry throughout. The balance of fruit and soft oak provides a lingering finish with hints of cocoa.'

Earthy flavors intrude on ripe currant and berry flavors in this light, polished red. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 150,000 cases made.

A well-balanced blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, this fruit-forward wine displays generous blackberry and raspberry notes that wrap around a core of warm vanilla flavors and lead to a rich, silky finish.

Wisps of luscious, dark red fruits float out of the glass. Full-bodied and well-structured, especially for the price, this big wine boasts flavors of ripe currant, juicy plum and dark cherry, with a nice amount of spice.

Aromas and flavors of dark red fruits reveal a bold style of Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine displays fruit complexity and structure – pair this wine with beef tenderloin or pasta.

The Grand Estates Cabernet is solid and consistent from vintage to vintage. It often retails for less than the listed price, making it a particularly fine value. Here, again, the fruit shines with well-focused flavors of pomegranate and berry. The mouthfeel is fresh and flavors vividly etched with excellent length.
