Winemaker's Notes:

Number 30 on Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of 2004!

"This is the fourth consecutive outstanding rating and second straight at 93 for this selection of the best lots of Cabernet from Washington's biggest winery. The ripe, polished, opulent style teems with spicy black cherry, raspberry, black olive, bay leaf and sweet spice flavors, which echo against the superfine tannins on the long, generous finish."
-Wine Spectator

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.
