Columbia Crest Merlot Columbia Valley Grand Estates 1999

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Smooth in texture, generous in flavor, a medium-scale red with pretty raspberry, leather and tar notes mingling on the round finish. From a consistently good Washington producer. Drink now through 2004.

Remaining true to its Washington state pedigree, finesse and elegance mark the stylistic philosophy of this wine. Soft notes of cassis, cherry and mint are underscored by subtle tannins on a velvety finish.

This budget wine has sweet fruit and soft tannins, along with surprising concentration and length. Offsetting a hint of stemminess are generous, varietally true flavors, and a rich, meaty nose that suggests beef and coffee.
