Citrus and buttery nose, leading into a creamy palate with orange notes, and a lengthy finish with notes of lime. Good acidity that cuts through the oak.

This wine is the perfect sipper for me. The balance was perfect - nice crisp acidity and fruit flavors as well as a delightfully buttery body and creamy finish. Highly recommend it as an asperitif, perhaps a nice bath-time drinker.

Smoky, ripe, honeyed fruit and grapiness are pleasant on this light to medium-bodied wine, which possesses decent acidity and length. It should be drunk over the next year.

This wine is a perfect example of delicious Chardonnay that has survived the price increase that has plagued so many other Chardonnays. Medium to full bodied with plenty of layered apple and pear fruit culminating with a tangy spicy finish. A great value in domestic Chardonnay that shouldn't be overlooked.

Here's a fresh and fragrant white delivering an enticing mouthful of apple and citrus flavors that echo on the harmonious finish. From one of Washington's biggest names; this vintage is lighter than usual, but the wine is a very good value, as usual. Drink now.

Columbia Crest's Chardonnay is a perennial "best buy" pick and this rendition shows every sign of making the grade again. Pineapple and layers of butterscotch, cinnamon and nutmeg are expressed in the nose. Clean and spicy on the palate, this medium-bodied wine's lingering aftertaste makes this a wine to savor.

From Washington comes this easy-to-find and easy-to-afford Chardonnay. It's bright in flavor, supple in texture and brimming with pineapple cream and spice notes that harmonize nicely through the generous finish. Drink now through 2003.

Tight, lean and green, with right, appley fruit and apple-pie spices. This is stylish juice, forward and delicious, with a refreshing liveliness that invites a second glass.

A Washington white whose appeal doesn't stop with its value price, this is light, soft and tangy, with pretty orange peel and creamy notes weaving through the supple pear flavors, the ensemble echoing nicely on the gentle finish. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

Score: N/A Tasting Notes: Whole-berry Chardonnay from select vineyards was pressed. The juice was held at 50 degrees in stainless steel tanks for two days allowing solids to settle. 40% of the clarified juice was barrel fermented in new American and French oak, and 30% in older oak barrels to create complexity and maintain the fruit integrity. 30% of the juice was fermented instainless steel to retain the minerality and fruit-forward, elegant characters unique to the Horse Heaven Hills region. All barrels were hand-stirred weekly for six to nine months. Website: Columbia Crest
