Black cherries and plums on the nose. Bright and tart with acidic black cherries. A chocolatey tea finish. Really nice.

Rating 87: Firm body with well balanced flavors. Nose very light but good balance. This wine does not approach earlier years of columbia crest Merlot but still good.

Multitasking again, sipping this Merlot to its very end on a late Saturday afternoon in January was more enjoyable than watching the Jets beat the Bengals. I don't drink much inexpensive new world Merlot, but this bottle was a very good value.

Oaky nose, very sweet/candied fruit palate balanced with tangy acidity, moderate to high tannins and a little spice.

Very nice bottle, unexpected actually for what I thought this would be...dark fruit on nose, medium bodied, chocolate milk consistency and taste at one point - nice mouth feel. Nice cherry fruit balanced with background oak. Nice solo and with a meal of spicy food that night (and an episode of lost). Bogle Merlot was the last I've tried, which was also good.

lLight nose though full of berries. Palate opens with cherries and currants, nice finish with some tannins and a bit of acidity. The Cab Franc comes through on finish. Great with stewed and grilled beef. Can shelve for a year or two as well.

Der Grand Estate Merlot 2006 zeigt zunächst eine dichte, klare dunkelrot Farbe und einen Duft, der von der Fruchtaromatik von Blau- und Himbeeren geprägt ist und zusätzlich deutlich Anklänge zu Sauerkirschen, eine Spur von gerösteter Kokosnuss und Zedernholz aufweist. Dies ist ein Merlot mit mittlerem Körper, samtiger Frucht und Eleganz, er zeigt eine feine Röstaromatik und ein gut ausbalanciertes Finale. Er eignet sich bestens zu feinaromatischen Speisen wie geräucherter Entenbrust oder zu Kalbs- und Kaninchenrücken.Weingut: Columbia CrestLand: USARegion: Washington StateRebsorten: 85% Merlot, 7% Syrah, 5% Cabernet Franc, 3% Cabernet SauvignonInhalt: 3 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 5 g/lRestsüße: trockenEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18°CLagerfähigkeit: 7 - 10 Jahre ab JahrgangFassreife: in Barriques gereift (16 Monate)Auszeichnungen des Columbia Crest Grand Estate Merlot 2006:Decanter Silber Rotwein > USA > Washington State
