Columbia Crest Two Vines Shiraz Columbia Valley 2005
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.
This is a beautiful wine from Columbia Crest. It's full of ripe berry aroma, inky in color and bursting with fresh earthy morning moss deep bing cherry on the palate. It's very smooth with a bit of spice and extremely well balanced. Bought it in 08, drinking it now and it's delightful.
the aroma is strong of cherry, but not much else. upon tasting i found the cherry again which persisted until the very end of its travel through my mouth finally relenting to a dark earthy taste before being lost down my throat. i found this pattern to hold constistent until after i had a few bites of my dinner (beef empanadas with fresh spicy green salsa). the spice from the food really brought the sweetness of the cherry out more and made the dark earthy taste more pronounced to where it reminded me of my time spent hiking/backpacking/climbing the columbia river valley. and while this was a nice tasting wine, i found it to be a bit too simple to really make me so wow, or even hmm.
Lots of berries, smooth, not great depth but a good value. Nice accompaniment to Morrocan tagine and couscous.

Straightforward, this offers thin, tart fruit with excessive vanilla and tobacco flavors. Thereandrsquo;s no residual sugar, but otherwise itandrsquo;s right out of the Australian playbook.
This Shiraz features New World-style ripe and jammy fruit aromas. Flavors of black cherry and white pepper are pronounced on the palate with hints of boysenberry and raspberry. The lingering finish is pleasingly supple.
A lovely range of sweet spices and supple, seductive blackberry, raspberry and cocoa flavors mingles seamlessly on the long, effortless finish. Tannins are submerged, making this easy to like. Drink now through 2007.

A 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 decent length. It says Shiraz but itrsquo;s less of an Aussie style and more of a snappy, acid-driven Washington take.
