2003 Columbia Crest, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grand Estates, Columbia Valley, Washington, $11, 150,000 cases. The wine is deeply hued, with aromas of black cherries, milk chocolate and cedar. It is very ripe in the mouth, bordering on pruniness; 80/80.
---------------------
2003 Columbia Crest, Merlot, Grand Estates, Columbia Valley, Washington, $11, 150,000 cases. Generous American oak and black fruits carry from nose to mouth. The liberal oak flavors obscure any fruit trying to peer through; 80/80.
---------------------
2005 Columbia Crest, Gewurztraminer, Two Vines, Columbia Valley,
Washington, $8, 30,000 cases. This soft, sweet, simple quaffer should be consumed now for the apricot, spice and honeysuckle notes; 80/80.
