Columbia Crest 2 Vines Cabernet Sauvignon Premier 2009
Hand-picked grapes from block 99 were crushed with 20% whole berries remaining. Cold soaking on the skins for two days extracted soft tannins and intense color. Twice-daily pumpovers during fermentation occurred for six to ten days to aerate the wine and enhance aromatics and bouquet.
At Columbia Crest we pride ourselves on delivering handcrafted, superior-quality small-lot wines, as well as affordable everyday Washington wines. Our first release in 1984 started a tradition that has established us as one of America’s most popular and fast-growing wineries.

External Reviews for Columbia Crest 2 Vines Cabernet Sauvignon Premier
An outstanding Reserve, this opens with potent aromas of spice and cacao, which lead onto a muscular, sleek and stylish palate that shows terrific depth of black fruits. The wine has exceptional structure, and it remains nuanced, with details of earth and stem.
Bright and focused, showing a sandy accent to the spicy cassis and thyme flavors, with a polished texture on the harmonious finish. Offers complexity and depth. Best from 2014 through 2019.
