Food Pairings for Columbia Crest Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley
This is he one for those of you who are short of cash. This is an inense fruity wine smooth on the palate. It's taste is intense to say the least, smooth, fruity of dark fruits, chocolate, tobacco oak and a smokey finish that lasts on the upper mid palate. If you need a side car wine to go with your prominent selection, throw it in the cart and consider it a bonus bottle for under $ 9.00. I will rate this good and also purchase a couple of bottles for future meals.
My Rating 91: perfect berry nose with slight strong Oak flavors. Body very well balanced in the front. at the end it fades away elegant but displaying a medium body. Got this at Costco for $12.99.
After 2 hour decant: slightly more than medium body, smooth, jammy blackberry, strawberry, hint of chocolate and cigar box, subdued but well balanced acid and tannins. Very nice for the price!
Nice fruit forward and for the under 10 crowd this works for that everyday wine or just to have for the super bowl :-). OK since this was more on the medium side and and big and bold it's NOT, it actually went well with the all the snacks . So gave it a 3 cause of the price and how it went well with the snacks. Any higher in the price and I would not get it or rate it as high
Smooth and buttery. Good red but not full bodied.
Very enjoyable. Smooth for a cab. Will purchase again.
Very fruit forward for a cabernet. It tastes more like a zinfandel to me and is a bit jammy for my tastes. Not necessarily a bad wine but I wouldn't pick it again when I want a cab.
External Reviews for Columbia Crest Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley
Smoky, slightly gamy aromas and flavors add interest to the basic black cherry and currant in this solid, beautifully proportioned Cabernet. A stylish red, nicely packed with flavor, and with no harsh edges. Drink now through 2005.
Ripe and generous on a soft, open-textured frame, offering currant and plum fruit and a touch of peppery herbs on the round finish. A terrific buy from one of Washington's most reliable winemakers. Drink now through 2004.
This has really ripe blackberry and cherry flavors, soft tannins, a nice fat mouthfeel and hints of darker roasted stuff. Big, smooth and lush, it gathers power and finishes with a big swoop of meaty, fruity, fat flavor. Not heavy, but delicious and beautifully balanced.
Check out the deal on this Washington Cab. It's firm and chewy, but the ripe currant and blackberry flavors shine through and linger on the generous finish, and the tad-rough edges should smooth with a little cellar time. Best from 2000 through 2006.
Soft, straightforward and appealing for its grapey, slightly foxy fruit, finishing with generosity. Drink now.
This is a very nice bottle, firm and showing moderately plump plum and cassis fruit. There is a sense of layering, and some modest hints of anise and mineral and mocha through the mid-palate. Finishes clean and surprisingly lengthy.
Soft and ripe, generous with its plump cherry and berry fruit, hinting at vanilla and plum on the round finish, this is value to be grabbed without hesitation. It's delicious already, and the tannins are well-submerged. Drink now through 2006.
Score: 90 Tasting Notes: This intense, fruit-forward Cabernet Sauvignon delivers aromas of cherries and huckleberry jam, with a perfect balance of earthy tannins, great focus in the mid-palate and a soft, smooth cocoa finish. Website: Columbia Crest
