Winemaker's Notes:

Traditional black cherry and blueberry notes are layered with toasty coconut and vanilla. The flavors are rich and concentrated, and the tannins provide good structure and complexity. This wine has supple finish replete with toast and fruit nuances. The wine will grow increasingly refined with up to seven years of bottle age.

About Columbia Crest:

Founded in 1983, Columbia Crest has grown from a small winery in a relatively unknown wine region to one of the most significant wineries in the U.S. and a major force behind Washington state's emergence as a world-class wine region. Over the years, the winery has remained committed to delivery handcrafted, small-lot wines, as well as affordable, superior quality everyday wines. In 2009, the winery reached a milestone when Wine Spectator named their 2005 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon "Wine of the Year," the first time a wine from Washington state has received the ranking. This accolade was not only a historic moment for Columbia Crest, but for all wineries in Washington and reinforced the belief that the region is among the best wine-producing areas in the world.
