Columbia Crest Merlot 03 Washington Columbia Crest 2003

Member Review by dbhonig:

Nose is chocolate, cherries, and prunes. Very fruity. On the mouth it is thick, almost but not quite syrupy. Chocolate cherries and cassis predominate, with just a little earth and bramble to save it from being a complete fruit bomb. Finish is short, with a bit of dry cocoa flavor.

I always pick up a couple of Columbia Crest Merlots at the grocery store - this winery puts out some of the best of what I classify as "grocery store wines". Widely available, inexpensive, high quality, good tasting, very quaffable.

Pleasant nose of cherries and stewed fruits. Tart cherry and raspberry flavors with some tannins. Medium to long finish. Excellent value ( I paid $6 ).
