This is he one for those of you who are short of cash. This is an inense fruity wine smooth on the palate. It's taste is intense to say the least, smooth, fruity of dark fruits, chocolate, tobacco oak and a smokey finish that lasts on the upper mid palate. If you need a side car wine to go with your prominent selection, throw it in the cart and consider it a bonus bottle for under $ 9.00. I will rate this good and also purchase a couple of bottles for future meals.

My Rating 91: perfect berry nose with slight strong Oak flavors. Body very well balanced in the front. at the end it fades away elegant but displaying a medium body. Got this at Costco for $12.99.

After 2 hour decant: slightly more than medium body, smooth, jammy blackberry, strawberry, hint of chocolate and cigar box, subdued but well balanced acid and tannins. Very nice for the price!

Nice fruit forward and for the under 10 crowd this works for that everyday wine or just to have for the super bowl :-). OK since this was more on the medium side and and big and bold it's NOT, it actually went well with the all the snacks . So gave it a 3 cause of the price and how it went well with the snacks. Any higher in the price and I would not get it or rate it as high

Bright and focused, showing a sandy accent to the spicy cassis and thyme flavors, with a polished texture on the harmonious finish. Offers complexity and depth. Best from 2014 through 2019.

An outstanding Reserve, this opens with potent aromas of spice and cacao, which lead onto a muscular, sleek and stylish palate that shows terrific depth of black fruits. The wine has exceptional structure, and it remains nuanced, with details of earth and stem.

Ripe and generous on a soft, open-textured frame, offering currant and plum fruit and a touch of peppery herbs on the round finish. A terrific buy from one of Washingtonrsquo;s most reliable winemakers. Drink now through 2004.

Firm and slightly chalky, this features light plum, blueberry and mocha components. Therersquo;s a hint of soapiness, and some herbal roughness in the finish.

Undurchsichtiges Purpur mit schwarzer Mitte. Engverwobenes schwarzbeeriges Bouquet nach Pflaumenkompott, dunkler Kirsche, dunkles Edelholz, Koriander und Zimtgebäck in der komplexen Nase, unterlegt mit nobler Tabakwürze und Heidelbeergelee. Kompakte Tannine im druckvollen Gaumen, Lakritzeartiges Extrakt und wieder viel schwarze und blaue Frucht, Brombeeren, Wachholder und mineralische Pfeffernoten, Kirschtabak und Schokopastillen bis ins lange anhaltende Finale. Wer ihn jetzt schon geniessen will unbedingt 3h vorher dekantieren.

This wine has become something like Olrsquo; Faithful to the American wine consumer. Affordable, quaffable, yet substantial and always interesting, Columbia Crest is a continual best buy. The 2000 shows the trademark blueberry and blackcurrant with a hint of anise and earth adding to its complexity. Structured and crisp, it tends to show best with some food to open up the rich primary fruit underlying its firm surface.
