Editorial Reviews for Columbia Crest Syrah Columbia Valley Grand Estates
Nice dark fruits on the nose have a roasted edge and are framed with vanilla, roast coffee and spicy oak notes. On entry this is full and darkly fruited but the sweetness of the fruit quickly fades leaving the mid-palate exposed to an onslaught of spicy oak and wood tannins. the finish has decent length and nice freshness but not enough to redeem this. 82pts
Great spice concentration and balance of fruit with the blending work, though the oak exposure could have been a few degrees softer.
Very enjoyable shiraz. Warm and fruity up front, with a very soft and smooth finish.

This opaque, reddish-purple wine contains expressivearomas of pepper, spice, blueberry, and violet. It makesa fresh entry on the palate with layers of fresh fruit andsoft tannins that carry through the long silky finish.Enjoy this wine with grilled dishes.'
