Food Pairings for Columbia Crest Chardonnay Blend Columbia Valley
Mediocre Washington chardonnay. Somewhat oaky and heavy with butterscotch, brown spices and little acidity.
Green apple on the nose, very buttery. A little bit of oak on the finish.
good value,fruity,spicy,medium bodied
Maybe I kept it too long, but nothing special or inspiring. Leaves undesirable aftertaste on tongue.
For the unbelievable price, this is a great table wine. Thanks for Randy Elrod for the recommendation.

Aromas of poached pear, caramel apple, spice and a hint of blossoms precede a mouthful of bright fruit, reminiscent of a fresh Gala apple. The refi ned fl avors of this crisp Chardonnay end with a gracefully lingering fi nish of cream and butter nuances. - Ray Einberger, Winemaker

The 2009 Chardonnay Grand Estates was 100% barrel-fermented, went through full malolactic fermentation and was aged sur lie with weekly batonnage, a huge investment in labor for 250,000 cases of wine selling for $12. The nose offers up hints of oak, pear, apple and tropical fruit aromas. Smooth-textured, spicy, and well-balanced, this lengthy effort over-delivers in a big way.
Light, silky and polished to show off its creamy, spicy pear flavors, lingering on the deftly balanced finish. Drink now.
The 2008 Chardonnay Grand Estates was barrel-fermented in a combination of new and seasoned French and American where it went through malolactic and was aged sur lie with weekly batonnage for 9 months. Consider the labor and expense of doing this for 8000 barrels (200,000 cases) of a wine that sells for only $11 a bottle. It is medium straw-colored with a nose of pear and apple. On the palate it has a solid core of fruit, integrated oak, a smooth texture, and spicy flavors. Drink this excellent value over the next 1-2 years.
Polished, round and spicy, this is generous with its creamy pear and caramel flavors, lingering on the nutmeg-tinged finish. Drink now through 2014.
