Smooth & Supple
I buy this wine locally for under 8 bucks, but even at 10 it is a hell of a buy. It is not a huge cab full of leather and classic earmarks, but it is an extremely quaffable, full-fruit, well-balanced wine. I bought some for a party, liking the price, then I discovered I liked the wine and now buy it as my "house" cab. Paul Pogo Cummins Austell, Ga. p.s. Just got 'round to opening a couple of bottles of 2007 Columbia Crest HHH I bought years ago. What a massive treat of a wine. My only regret is that I did not buy a couple of cases when I had the chance. Even though this site rated the 2011 at 90 also, I don't think it has a prayer of developing along the lines of the massive '07.
decent wine, but not the full pinot noir that i really go for
