Columbia Crest Syrah Columbia Valley Grand Estates 2004

Member Review by lingprof:

I was mixed about this. The finish seemed to have a fair amount of spicy complexity for the price, but the first impression was shallow and too tart for me. The more I drank, the less I liked it, interestingly.

I couldn't help but feel that I was drinking grape juice with alcohol, rather than an actual, crafted wine. The flavors were nice and fruity, but it lacked focus and substance.

Plummy and a bit sharp. Good with a spaghetti dinner.

A bit too sharp and woody for me, but drinkable.

Just had a bottle 2 days ago, it has gotten better and better and better. And here we thought it was at its peak a year ago, but it seems to keep on getting better! Am beginning to wonder just how good this is going to get. It's nearing classic status, and easily outranks just about any under $30 bottle I could think of. And I got several bottles at 5 bucks (yes that's FIVE)... if you find ANY at less than 15usd, you are getting a stone cold bargain.

Two Vines Shiraz Magnum 2004 (1,5L) - Columbia Crest: Two Vines Shiraz Magnum 2004 (1,5L) - Rotwein von Columbia CrestDer Columbia Crest Two Vines Shiraz zeigt herrlich saftige Aromen von schwarzer Kirsche mit Gewürzen und weißem Pfeffer, was ihn zu einem typischen Shiraz macht. Im Glas leuchtet er in einem dichten Purpurrot und duftet nach intensiven Aromen von schwarzer Kirsche und von Gewürzen. Am Gaumen erleben wir einen vollen, weich und scheichelnden Körper, der durch den kleinen Anteil Viognier über einen fruchtigen Charakter verfügt. Die Säure ist frisch und die Tannine dezent und weich. Im Nachhall finden wir reife Erdbeeren und etwas Schokolade. Er passt sehr gut zu Lamm-Chops, gefüllten Paprikaschoten und Spare Ribs.Weingut: Columbia CrestLand: USARegion: Washington StateRebsorte: 93% Shiraz, 5% Viognier, 3% MerlotInhalt: 1,5 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 5,75 g/lRestsüße: trockenEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18°CFassreife: Ausbau in Stahltanks (50%) und in Barriques gereift (14 Monate) Lagerfähigkeit: 5 - 7 Jahre ab JahrgangAuszeichnungen des Columbia Crest Two Vines Shiraz:90 Punkte -  Wine SpectatorPlatz 1 der Top-150 Weine mit dem besten Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis weltweit - Wine Spectator Rotwein > USA > Washington State

Wine Enthusiast ReviewRated 87 BEST BUYA good effort, with plenty of snap and sizzle for an eight dollar wine. You get juicy berry fruit, some clean spice and suggestions of white pepper, fine acids and a decent length. It says Shiraz, but it's less of an Aussie style and more of a snappy, acid-driven Washington take.
