Very perfumy on the nose. Vibrant burgundy colored, lots of fruit on the palate with very minimal tanning, very leathery on the tongue. Read more

Editorial Reviews for Columbia Crest Syrah Columbia Valley Reserve
Lovely on the nose: wiry, gamy and very little brett, but what is there is leather and fresh barnyard. Very fresh, not sure I would call this domestic. Green peppercorn, smokey, intense and really impressive. The cigar and minty spice are powerful. Big and a touch sweet with bright acids, lots of red plum and lots of red fruit. Backed up with a nice herbal, pollen note. Finishes with bright acids, a bit too bright, and a lot of sweet tea. Much more on the nose, which is outstanding, palate is red currant and a touch lean. 89pts
Decidedly heavy on the palette but nice structured fruit and hints of leather and tobacco. Smooth finish!
Very perfumy on the nose. Vibrant burgundy colored, lots of fruit on the palate with very minimal tanning, very leathery on the tongue.
On the nose, I found browned butter and black fruit with herbs, dark wood tones, a hint licorice and undergrowth. On the palate, it was rich yet fresh with dark fruits, savory saucy notes, and herbal tones. It was energetic and fun with lots of acidity and bacon notes on the finish.
Prune, black fruit and lavendar on the nose with similar impressions on the palate with the addition of a hint of mint.
