Nice dark fruits on the nose have a roasted edge and are framed with vanilla, roast coffee and spicy oak notes. On entry this is full and darkly fruited but the sweetness of the fruit quickly fades leaving the mid-palate exposed to an onslaught of spicy oak and wood tannins. the finish has decent length and nice freshness but not enough to redeem this. 82pts

This dark colored wine has a good amount of body, is moderately dry, tannic, and has plenty of mellow oak. Alcohol nicely integrated. Some dark fruit flavors but muted. A good bang for the buck though.

Very enjoyable shiraz. Warm and fruity up front, with a very soft and smooth finish.

I was mixed about this. The finish seemed to have a fair amount of spicy complexity for the price, but the first impression was shallow and too tart for me. The more I drank, the less I liked it, interestingly.

I couldn't help but feel that I was drinking grape juice with alcohol, rather than an actual, crafted wine. The flavors were nice and fruity, but it lacked focus and substance.

Plummy and a bit sharp. Good with a spaghetti dinner.

A bit too sharp and woody for me, but drinkable.

This opaque - almost purple -wine bursts out of the glass with intense aromas of spice, blueberry, lavender and violet. Great concentration in the mid-palate carries the fruit flavors towards the long silky finish.

This opaque, reddish-purple wine contains expressivearomas of pepper, spice, blueberry, and violet. It makesa fresh entry on the palate with layers of fresh fruit andsoft tannins that carry through the long silky finish.Enjoy this wine with grilled dishes.'

Wine Enthusiast ReviewRated 87 BEST BUYA 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 a decent length. It says Shiraz, but it's less of an Aussie style and more of a snappy, acid-driven Washington take.

Two Vines Shiraz Magnum 2004 (1,5L) - Columbia Crest: Two Vines Shiraz Magnum 2004 (1,5L) - Rotwein von Columbia CrestDer Columbia Crest Two Vines Shiraz zeigt herrlich saftige Aromen von schwarzer Kirsche mit Gewürzen und weißem Pfeffer, was ihn zu einem typischen Shiraz macht. Im Glas leuchtet er in einem dichten Purpurrot und duftet nach intensiven Aromen von schwarzer Kirsche und von Gewürzen. Am Gaumen erleben wir einen vollen, weich und scheichelnden Körper, der durch den kleinen Anteil Viognier über einen fruchtigen Charakter verfügt. Die Säure ist frisch und die Tannine dezent und weich. Im Nachhall finden wir reife Erdbeeren und etwas Schokolade. Er passt sehr gut zu Lamm-Chops, gefüllten Paprikaschoten und Spare Ribs.Weingut: Columbia CrestLand: USARegion: Washington StateRebsorte: 93% Shiraz, 5% Viognier, 3% MerlotInhalt: 1,5 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 5,75 g/lRestsüße: trockenEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18°CFassreife: Ausbau in Stahltanks (50%) und in Barriques gereift (14 Monate) Lagerfähigkeit: 5 - 7 Jahre ab JahrgangAuszeichnungen des Columbia Crest Two Vines Shiraz:90 Punkte -  Wine SpectatorPlatz 1 der Top-150 Weine mit dem besten Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis weltweit - Wine Spectator Rotwein > USA > Washington State
