Columbia Crest Two Vines Chardonnay Columbia Valley 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

This Chardonnay offers fruit-forward apple aromas with hints of spice and honey. Rich flavors reminiscent of apple pie and cinnamon end with a pleasant note of toasted marshmallow. Vibrant Washington fruit characters, with fresh acidity marry beautifully with toasty oak nuances.

Bright chardonnay with an immediate attack of sweet pears and pineapple with a candy-like nectar of peaches, nectarines and even apricot, but all in balance. Crisp, almost floral nose. The absence of toasty oak is a nice hint of vanilla. Actually reminiscent of a lovely Batard Montrachet I had before. The second day, some oak came through, but very slight.

This unoaked chardonnay is a fruity and special find. It is crisp, clean more like a Riesling than one usually thinks of a chardonnay. This is a nice wine that went well with our turkey dinner on Thanksgiving. If you like fruity but not too sweet, this is a great find.

Promising nose, with lots of carmel-coated pears, but the palate is quickly overwhelmed by a bitter, oppressive oakiness that gets worse with every sip. Which is a shame, because the grapes seem to have a lot of nice hidden fruit. Spectator's on crack. $12

No oak gets in the way of this delicious, dry, citrusy chard. The finist is on the mid-palate, and lingers and lingers.

Vibrant and generous with a spicy edge to the soft ripe pear cream and lime aromas and flavors lingering on the expressive finish. 90 Points Wine Spectator.

Columbia Crest's Chardonnay is a perennial "best buy" pick and this rendition shows every sign of making the grade again. Pineapple and layers of butterscotch, cinnamon and nutmeg are expressed in the nose. Clean and spicy on the palate, this medium-bodied wine's lingering aftertaste makes this a wine to savor.

Smooth, polished style has tangy pineapple flavors, finishing with a creamy note. Drink now.

Terrific fruit character in a straightforward Chardonnay. An easy-drinking white wine you'll want to keep around by the case.

Columbia Crest makes three Chardonnays, of which this is the least expensive. It boasts assertive, somewhat herbaceous aromas of peach and spice; the fruit is clean, forward and zesty. It displays a lot character in a vivid style that showcases Washington's intense fruit and lip-smacking acids.

Tight, lean and green, with right, appley fruit and apple-pie spices. This is stylish juice, forward and delicious, with a refreshing liveliness that invites a second glass.

Creamy and smooth, with a toasty edge to the pear and grapefruit flavors, lingering easily on the open-textured finish. Drink now through 2012.
