Purple color with nose that starts as peat bog, mineral and pepper with sour cherry. As the wine opens up a toasty cinnamon character really takes over on the nose. The palate has some initial hints of vanilla and caramel that gives way to plum, black cherry, cedar and some light pepper on the finish. The pepper is really enhanced with salty and spicy food pairing.

For the price, this one is a definite must. Seems like the stores are purging some of the 05's to 07's ready to stock the 2008's........some already on the shelf. The berry flavors are deep and the spicy reward is nice. I liked it so much this is my second review! I measure different Cabs against this one in my constant search for the wine that satisfies my palate.

I rate this one very nice, the deep berry taste and spicy overtones should be a treat to any Cabernet lover. I measure other Cabs against this one because it does my wine palate right.

For the price, this is about the best. Our local Fred Meyer food store has had this on sale for $7.99 and I would say that is marvelous ! I bought 2

Here is a wine that consistently shows quality well beyond its modest price tag. How do they do it, year after year? It’s in the vineyards. Grapes for Grand Estates Cabernet Sauvignon are harvested from vineyards located predominantly on the Horse Heaven Hills (which contributes texture and body) and the Wahluke Slope (for aromatics and complexity.) These vineyards are seated east of the Cascade Mountain range which effectively blocks eastward-moving wet weather systems from the Pacific Ocean. The soils have low fertility and low water-holding capacity, allowing precise control of vine growth. The grapes mature slowly, insuring complexity, concentration and depth. The wine, a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc, 2.5% Syrah and 2.5% Merlot, is aged in one third new oak for 16 months. The Wine Spectator called it a "Best Value" and said "Supple and surprisingly complex, this is generous with its meaty currant and blackberry flavors, remaining polished and finishing with clarity. Drink now through 2015."

What determines a perfect wine? A 100 point score? Who can afford or even find an occasion to drink a 100 point wine? Our customers love this wine because it's everyday affordable but it's so good they can serve it to guests when they entertain. A perfect wine? Maybe.

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

Columbia Crest’s Grand Estates wines are crafted from a collection of remarkable Columbia Valley vineyard sites, which are selected specifically for their ability to produce wines with intense fruit character and complexity not found in most “everyday” wines. Columbia Crest Grand Estates are distinguished by their ripe varietal intensity. Lush and vibrant, the wines offer a pleasing balance of sugar, pH and tannin—a synergy that is grown in the vineyards and preserved in the cellar.
