Never thought I'd have the word brilliant and Columbia Crest in the same sentence, but this isn't your CVS wine. Endlessly drinkable. Rich with viscous black fruit, smooth oak and smokey velvet. Balanced, intense. Let it breath for 30 minutes and you are good to go.

Another Columbia Crest Reserve Vintage that has done it again. It has some great berry notes, a little oak, and a touch of smoke and coffee. It finishes smooth like silk. Its a perfect blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cab Franc. For $30 its a bargain.

Best value. Look for great value at Costco on this bottle. The smooth velvet tannin finish with currents and cocoa make this wine great.

Ripe and polished, with gorgeous chocolate-tinged black currant, black raspberry and coffee notes swirling through the long, vivid finish. Tempting now, but should develop more with cellaring. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now... Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Washington in USA. 2005 Columbia Crest Walter Clore Private Reserve 750ml

Walter Clore Private Reserve 2005 - Columbia Crest: (Achtung: Stark nachgefragt! Wir empfehlen als Alternative dazu passend für "Chicken on Bud" von Idiom Bordeaux Style Blend 2006 - Rotwein mit 3.5 Platter Stars )Walter Clore Private Reserve 2005 - Rotwein von Columbia CrestZu Ehren des großen Weinbauforschers und "Vaters der Washington-State-Weine" Dr. Walter Clore kreierte Columbia Crest diesen großen Walter Clore Private Reserve im Bordeaux-Stil. Der Jahrgang 2005 begeistert durch seine geschmeidige Kraft, Struktur und einer Fülle von saftiger Beerenfrucht, zusammen mit dunkler Würze und eleganten Röstaromen. Er wirkt lebhaft und perfekt ausgewogen mit einer traumhaften Länge.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator Review Rated 92 Ripe and polished, with gorgeous chocolate-tinged black currant, black raspberry and coffee notes swirling through the long, vivid finish. Tempting now, but should develop more with cellaring. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2016. Wine Advocate Review Rated 90 Columbia Crests flagship is the 2005 Walter Clore Private Reserve, a blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, and 7% Cabernet Franc. It was aged for 26 months in new French oak. Purple-colored it exhibits an alluring bouquet of toast, coconut, chocolate, graphite, spice box, black currant, and black cherry. Medium to full-bodied, savory, and structured, this well-balanced effort will improve for another 3-5 years in the bottle and offer prime drinking from 2013 to 2025. Wine Enthusiast Review Rated 90 The finest Walter Clore since the 2001, this Bordeaux-style blend shows considerable muscle and depth. Built upon firm, cherry-berry fruit, it adds nuances of baking spice, pepper, vanilla wafer and a pleasing earthiness to the tannins. It represents the ultimate expression of Columbia Crest, and the 2005 marks a welcome return to excellence. Wine Tasting Notes A classic Bordeaux-style winemaking protocol enhances the aromatics of earth, coconut, blackberry, and slight mint in this red blend. Fruit and oak are perfectly balanced to yield a very complex chocolate-cherry-blackberry lingering finish. This is a soft yet powerful, complex wine.
