Yet another re-tool for this winery; Two Vines replaces the Columbia Valley tier. Smooth and flavorful, this chardonnay sports citrus/tropical fruit, suggestions of oak, and medium acids. Plenty of flavor in a balanced, forward, easy-drinking yet meaty effort.

Chardonnay Grand Estates, a superb value. This entirely barrel-fermented wine (60% American and 40% French, each of the 11,400 barrels has its lees stirred by hand every week for 6 months) reveals rich almond and spicy

Smooth, polished style has tangy pineapple flavors, finishing with a creamy note. Drink now.

Bigger with more obvious oak than the CC ldquo;regular,rdquo; this gets special treatment (hand-stirred for nine months once a week) and 25% new oak. Itrsquo;s nicely integrated, big and buttery, with pleasing layers of carmelized sugar and baked apple. A home run.

Fruity and soft and approachable, a mass-produced wine that still shows hand-crafted flavors. For the price this may well be the countryrsquo;s top chardonnay.

Located in the middle of nowhere, Columbia Crest consistently produces massive quantities of good to excellent wine, a truly remarkable feat. For example, there are 285,000 cases of the 2002 Chardonnay Grand Estates, a superb value. This entirely barrel-fermented wine (60% American and 40% French, each of the 11,400 barrels has its lees stirred by hand every week for 6 months) reveals rich almond and spicy mineral aromas. Medium-bodied, satin-textured, and balanced, it offers loads of pear, apple, and melon flavors in its expressive character. Drink it over the next 2 years.

This is a blocky, chiseled, mainstream style, with big, chunky fruit and well-defined, toasty oak. Still rough around the edges, it has more weight and concentration than the less expensive but oh-so-buttery ldquo;Two Vinesrdquo; bottling.
