External Reviews for Columbia Crest Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley Grand Estates
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.
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.'

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.
