Columbia Crest Grand Estates Chardonnay 2002
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.

Being a fan of oak and buttery flavors, this chardonnay rates up there with Feri Brothers and such a great value at less than 11 bucks.

Tart pear & green apple. Not buttery.

Very good with robust flavors. This bottle was gone in no time at my last dinner party.
