Columbia Crest Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley Grand Estates 2010

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.

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..

Wine Spectator 100 Top Values of 2016 Grand Estates Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested from vineyards located predominantly on the Horse Heaven Hills and the Wahluke Slope in the Columbia Valley. Vines are planted on south-facing slopes that provide excellent sun exposure for grape ripening, and protection from cold airflow during the winter months. Vineyards are 100% drip irrigation. This, combined with the low water-holding capacity of the soil, allow for precise control of the vines. 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, grapes were crushed and then fermented 6–10 days. The wine barrel-aged in 74% older American and French oak barrels for approximately 11 months. The Wine Spectator in addition to naming a Top 100 Value scored it 91 pionts saying "Broad and generous, open-textured and inviting, offering cherry, currant and red plum flavors that swirl enticingly among fine-grain tannins and creamy oak on the finish."

TASTING NOTES: This bold style Cabernet Sauvignon displays great complexity and structure. There are aromas of dark berry fruits and plum on the nose with chocolate and vanilla on the palate. This wine pairs well with beef tenderloin or hearty pasta. - JUAN MUÑOZ OCA, WINEMAKER BLEND: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon 18% Merlot 2% Cabernet Franc ALCOHOL: 14.0% TOTAL ACIDITY: 0.54g/100mL pH: 3.77

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.

Polished, plush and vibrant, with a core of plum and black currant fruit welling up seductively against hints of sweet spices and cream. The finish lingers beautifully. Drink now through 2017.

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.

Tasting Notes:

Our Grand Estates Cabernet Sauvignon displays an impressive concentration of dark fruits, black cherry, currant and fig aromas and flavors. The ripe, sweet, okay tannins are balanced by lovely fruit complexity.

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.
