Food Pairings for Columbia Crest Riesling Columbia Valley Grand Estates
I haven't tasted the Columbia Crest Grand Estate Riesling for many years before this 2010. Originally, I was not impressed but this offering is much better. It has more extract than their 2 vines and has a resin character with moderate fruit. A simple wine but nice nonetheless.

External Reviews for Columbia Crest Riesling Columbia Valley Grand Estates
Intense aromas of apples and pears are complemented by a hint of minerality and orange blossoms. Rich, opulent flavors of tropical fruit are accentuated by crisp acidity, leading to a lingering, vibrant finish.
A tangy, green apple flavored Riesling, with some light melon fruit also. It shows more varietal character than the rsquo;04 and has a nice juicy pop to the midpalate, despite the relatively high residual sugar.
A wonderfully fragrant nose mixers scents of fresh fruits and blossoms, with a sweet and tart flavors profile. These are very user friendly flavors, ripe and round, with more fatness than most Washington Rieslings, especially at this price.
Consistently fine, this sweet/tart, juicy and mouth-filling Riesling mixes plush stone fruits, green apple and melon, streaked with honey and orange peel. The 3.5% residual sugar is nicely matched with crisp acids.
A great entry-level Riesling, fresh, floral and delicate, the Two Vines offers refined, even subtle flavors of green apple and melon, with lovely natural acidity. Despite considerable residual sugar, it does not seem overly sweet.
Crisp and sweet at the same time, like a squeeze of fresh lime over a ripe peach, remaining tangy and tasty through the juicy finish. Picks up some nice mineral and floral hints at the end. Drink now through 2005.
A new line for value leader Columbia Crest, this exceptionally fragrant, off-dry Riesling bursts with honeysuckle scents and tropical fruit flavors. Therersquo;s enough crispness to support the residual sugar and keep the wine poised and vivid.
This elegant Washington Riesling presents delicate aromas of white and orchard blossoms, complemented by a hint of minerality. Generous apple, peach and orange zest flavors weave gracefully through a crisp acid frame, leading to a vibrant finish.
