RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

Lots of ripe black cherry in the smell and taste. Modest aroma of spice and cocoa. The taste is full of ripe fruit with some oak. Soft mouthfeel and smooth finish. Nice, easy drinking wine and a great price. I paid $7.95.
Really a nice Merlot! I like the entire experience drinking this wine from swirling it in the glass, the aroma, the smooth taste...who doesn't like chocolate and berries? Good to the last drop!
better than advertised. for an inexpensive merlot, this is excellent and surprisingly complex. great value!
better and lighter than expected, this wine surprised me a bit. i got it on sale at the supermarket, and it was very serviceable. it was a bit fruity on the front end and tasted younger than 2007, but i have to say that i enjoyed the experience. a solid finish and a solid merlot.
I thought this a more sophisticated wine than its price tag suggests. Fairly complex, moderately tannic and well balanced. Not your basic lush merlot; a little more reminiscent of a bordeaux blend.
Now, this is a great wine! Strong fresh, cherry aromas with a hint of blackberry. Flavors are perfect. It's an easy drinker and went great with baked chicken. A !!
Great for the price. Nice smooth finish for a merlot.
External Reviews for Columbia Crest Merlot Columbia Valley Two Vines
From the winery, 'This complex, artisanally crafted wine offers classic Merlot spice, ripe cherry fruit, and cocoa aromatics which persist on the palate. The balance of wood and black fruits creates a velvety, seductively smooth finish.'
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.
Juicy and lively, appealing for its beautifully articulated berry, cherry and delicately herbal flavors, picking up some spicy-smoky notes on the polished finish. Tannins are present but not too powerful. A serious wine for the price. Drink now through 2004.
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.
A clean, light red with dark strawberry and juicy raspberry flavors. Though not varietally distinct, it's ready for roast beef or a stew.
This well-priced Merlot from the winery's Grand Estates line blends in 10 percent Cabernet Franc and 5 percent Cabernet Sauvignon. Winemaker Ray Einberger feels the Merlot from estate vineyards in Horse Heaven Hills adds texture and body, while grapes from the Wahluke Slope contribute aromatics and complexity. The wine is aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels.
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.
