Why this is only rated at 3.5 is beyond me. It's a delicious, creamy, with a bite of spice chardonnay and you want to savor each sip. I've bought two more bottles, one to age for a year or two in order to taste the flavors as it ages. I think it's excellent and a great price!
I am so disappointed in the 2008 Columbia Crest 2008 Chardonnay. It has very little flavor and doesn't come close to the 2006/2007. I would not buy this wine again, unless I find 2006/2007.
This is a nice, pleasent, refreshing wine. Nothing complex, here. The nose is very faint, and the taste is on the sweeter side for a Chardonnay. There are even cheaper wines that taste as good. But I'm not complaining about this one.
External Reviews for Columbia Crest Chardonnay Columbia Valley Grand Estates
This lighter style Chardonnay opens with aromas of fresh spiced peaches and honeysuckle. Lively fruit flavors are accented by notes of lemon zest and creamy marshmallow ending with a juicy, crisp finish. Intended for immediate enjoyment, this Chardonnay captures the varietal intensity indicative of wines from Washington state.
At Columbia Crest we pride ourselves on delivering handcrafted, superior-quality small-lot wines, as well as affordable everyday Washington wines.
Columbia Crest is a perennial favorite for value, represented here by this lovely Chardonnay. Winemaker Doug Gore ferments some grapes in French barrels, some in American oak, some in stainless steel. Gore's master blend results in one of the best and most affordable Washington Chardonnays year after year.
Terrific fruit character in a straightforward Chardonnay. An easy-drinking white wine you'll want to keep around by the case.
The Grand Estates lineup from Columbia Crest is always a leader in the Chardonnay and Merlot categories. This offers intense fruit and a decent amount of new oak, bundled into a big, ripe wine with plenty of pineapple/butterscotch power, and enough firm acid to knit it all together.
Admirers of oak-laden Chardonnays will be enthused by Columbia Crest's 1999 Chardonnay Grand Estates. Its sweet, toasty oak aromas lead to a silky-textured, vanilla, apple, and coconut-flavored character. It is well-balanced, fresh, and offers delicious, uncomplicated drinking.
Rich and vibrant, beautiful focused to show off its plush honey, spice and smoke-accented pear and apricot flavors. Finish is seductively polished and as smooth as a Jean Arp sculpture. Drink now through 2005.
