Columbia Crest Two Vines Cabernet Sauvignon 2002 Wine Review (NW)

Aromatic nose of plum, sweet cherry, and vanilla
Silky smooth palate
A touch of chocolate on the smooth finish

This wine is very smooth and round for a Cabernet Sauvignon. While it may not be the best representation of this varietal, it's delicious. A lot of flavors are packed into this wine for the pricetag- $7 a bottle. I have a case in my cellar as a reliable fall-back wine, when my wife and I can't decide what we want. It always pleases the palate and is fun to drink.

Columbia Crest makes really smooth, delicious wines. And they are extremely value-oriented. Don't pass up their wines. Raise a glass!

This wine is outstanding for 7 a bottle- If you do your homework, you can buy it for 4.99 at your local wine discount center. You can't go wrong with this one. I even serve it at a dinner parties- Go with the previous reviewer and purchase a case!
