Columbia Crest Grand Estates Chardonnay 2003
from Columbia Valley, Washington
"Bigger, with more obvious oak than the CC "regular," this gets special treatment (hand-stirred for nine months once a week) and 25% new oak. It's nicely integrated, big and buttery, with pleasing layers of caramelized sugar and baked apple. A home run."
-Wine Enthusiast Best Buy
Apple, pear and caramel are evident in the nose and on the palate. It is supple and mouth-filling with a long, lingering finish. Aged 11 months for added complexity and a rich, silky mouth feel. This is an approachable wine brimming with flavor.

A Customer - Virginia
For a red wine drinker, my wife is slowly converting me to a white wine drinker. The two wins that are changing my drinking tastes are both chardonays. Columbia Crest was the first that started the change. The second is from a small winery in norther Virginia named Naked Mountain winery. The chard is the only sine from there I have tried so far, but they have a steady customer in me for at least one of their products.
