Columbia Crest Chardonnay Horse Heaven Hills Reserve 2010
The Grand Estates Chardonnay opens with bright fruit aromas of apple and pear which harmonize gracefully with signature notes of caramelized sugar and butterscotch. Ripe fruit flavors are bolstered by lively acidity, yet balanced deftly with a subtle creaminess. The striking combination of rich flavors, ample body and refreshing finish make this wine a natural pairing for a wide array of foods.
At Columbia Crest we pride ourselves on delivering handcrafted, superior-quality small-lot wines, as well as affordable everyday Washington wines. Our first release in 1984 started a tradition that has established us as one of America’s most popular and fast-growing wineries.
Over oaked IMHO. Just not my cup of tea.
Decent mid-range chardonnay with some oak and subtle spice. Somewhat buttery with the oak over-riding the fruit.
oaky and light with a hint of citrus
Fruit forward, soft tannins, nice finish, complex with blueberry, licorice. Cab, merlot, syrah blend
A really good mild and light blend.
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.

The 2009 Chardonnay Horse Heaven Hills (a mere 36,000 cases) was 75% barrel-fermented with 75% of the wine going through malolactic fermentation. It was aged sur lie in barrel for 9 months with batonnage. Toasty tropical aromas lead to a spicy, savory, well-balanced, lengthy Chardonnay that is an excellent value meant for drinking over the next 2–3 years.
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, ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Chardonnay wine from Washington in USA. 2009 Columbia Crest Chardonnay Grand Estates 750ml
