Winemaker's Notes:

Our Reserve wines are made from the finest lots from the finest vineyards. This vintage had an exceptional growing season allowing extended hang time for intense fruit flavors.

"Richly packed with black cherry, eucalyptus and spicy aromatics. Concentrated fruit, cocoa and clove are joined with fine, mouth-coating tannins to yield a complex, lingering finish." -Doug Gore, Winemaker.

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.
