Columbia Crest Riesling Columbia Valley Grand Estates 2010
At Columbia Crest we pride ourselves on delivering handcrafted, superior-quality small-lot wines, as well as affordable everyday Washington wines. Our first release in 1984 started a tradition that has established us as one of America’s most popular and fast-growing wineries.
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.
$10 wine. Crisp, some sweet right amount of tart. Really a good Riesling, great at $10. $10!
Three and a half glasses
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.
Soft and appealing for its pretty pear and apple flavors, finishing off-dry. Drink now.
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.
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.
Sweet, with a lively balance to the almond-accented apple and honey flavors. Finishes with an open texture. Drink now.
A soft, gentle style, with pleasant pear and spicy floral flavors that almost seem to fly under the radar as the finish persists. Drink now.
Off-dry. A touch of grapefruit sneaks in with the peach and almond notes, echoing nicely on the soft finish. A nice Riesling from a reliable Washington state winemaker. Drink now.
