    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.

    The Grand Estates Chardonnay opens with bright tropical fruit aromas that lead in to notes of soft oak and butterscotch. Ripe fruit flavors are bolstered by lively acidity, yet balanced deftly with a subtle creaminess. - Juan Munoz Oca, WinemakerALCOHOL: 13.5%TOTAL ACIDITY: 0.55 g/100mlPH: 3.59

    At Columbia Crest we pride ourselves on delivering handcrafted, superior-quality small-lot wines, as well as affordable everyday Washington wines.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Grand Estates is Columbia Crest's midpriced offering, and this Chardonnay sees plenty of oak and sur lie aging. Rich, toasted-nut aromas underscore firm apple and pear fruit. The custardy texture is a treat.

    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.
