Winemaker Notes

This intense, fruit-forward Cabernet Sauvignon delivers aromas of cherry blossom and rose petals with a perfect balance of earth, mineral, deep berry flavors, and a soft, smooth cocoa finish.

The 2006 growing season was marked by weather extremes, with near record rainfallduring the early spring and record high temperatures in the early and mid-summer. Although a challenging season weather-wise, exceptional sites including the warmer parts of the Horse Heaven Hills and Wahluke Slope saw early ripening and bold tannins from the high temperatures. In the cooler growing areas later ripening prompted good color, pronounced fruit flavors and softer tannins in reds.

Top 100 Value of the Year and Best Buy This has satisfying savory aromas of tree bark, tobacco and sundried tomato to complement the dark, plumy fruit. There's enough of a red tinge to that fruit to give the wine freshness and energy. A steal of a cab and a great choice for grilled short ribs.

Columbia Crest, Washington
Columbia Crest Winery Video
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.

Washington produces so many exciting wines, and that definitely includes Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. With over 10,000 acres under vine, Cabernet Sauvignon is now the most widely-grown varietal in the state. Terrific examples hail from sub-appellations like Red Mountain, Wahluke Slope, Horse Heaven Hills and Walla Walla Valley. One of the fascinations of these Columbia Valley Cabs is that they so often seem to have one foot in the New World and one in the Old. Representing the former are characteristics like the ripe, forward fruit that results from long sunny days during the growing season (up to two hours longer than in much of California). Old World similarities include an undeniable brightness from acidity, as well as notes of herbs, graphite and a dusty, sometimes gravelly minerality.

Whether you’re looking for a budget bottle for everyday enjoyment, or a stellar, world-class wine with tremendous aging potential, Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon wines can deliver the goods! Among the many fine options are bottles from Columbia Crest, Chateau Ste. Michelle, L’ecole #41, Quilceda Creek and Leonetti.
