After venturing out to Cabs and various white wines I came back to Merlot and specifically Columbia Crest. I've had their wine before (not sure which one) and did not appreciate it. This one however, was good and I can see myself buying it again for myself or for a dinner or gift. I'm not good at describing the various flavors a wine gives so I'll not try here.

The Grand Estates Merlot has to be considered one of the best-if not the best-budget Merlots in the world. The color is pure and deep, there is a strong tannic spine, and the flavors of cassis and coffee, boysenberry and chocolate could be coming from a much more expensive bottle. - P.G. Supple and generous and appealing for its ripe cherry and herb flavors, persisting well. Hints at dill as the finish lingers. Drink now through 2011. 280,000 cases made. -HS
