Columbia Crest Two Vines Chardonnay Columbia Valley 2007
At Columbia Crest we pride ourselves on delivering handcrafted, superior-quality small-lot wines, as well as affordable everyday Washington wines. Our first release in 1984 started a tradition that has established us as one of America’s most popular and fast-growing wineries.
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.
Good value. lemon, apples, vanilla, butterscotch and creamy
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.
smooth, mellow, no after-taste. not too sweet and not too dry.
