Winemaker's Notes:

This wine has rich black cherry fruit, layered with soft vanilla, spicy cedar, and toasty tannins. We made sure of maximum extraction during the crush, then gently racked the wines in their American oak barrels every few months during 16 months of cellaring. For an idea of what to expect, critics called the 1995 vintage "big and bold with a long rich finish," "a harmonious wine with a supple, round core."

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.
