Columbia Crest Shiraz Columbia Valley 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"This Shiraz features New World-style ripe and jammy fruit aromas. Flavors of black cherry and white pepper are pronounced on the palate with hints of boysenberry and raspberry. This is an elegant yet approachable and complex wine without being complicated." -Winery

I was extremely impressed and surprised by this wine. I wasn't expecting a lot at this price, but it will stack up against Shiraz at much higher price points. It is a tribute to Washington wine making and has a full oak flavor without being overpowering; lots of fruit notes and very smooth finish. I highly recommend this one.

This is an unbeatable value -- fabulous, balanced Shiraz that matches up with those twice its price.

We called this wine our "house red" and we were buying it for $4.99 which was just a ridiculous price for this quality of a wine. It matches up really well against much higher priced Shiraz/Syrah.

This Shiraz features New World-style ripe and jammy fruit aromas. Flavors of black cherry and white pepper are pronounced on the palate with hints of boysenberry and raspberry. The lingering finish is pleasingly supple.

Wine Tasting NotesWhite pepper, strawberry and freshly plucked rose petals meld with exotic spice notes to create a complex, balanced wine with a full mouthfeel and supple finish.
