Columbia Crest "Two Vines" Cabernet Sauvignon 2002 wine review by (PB)

This Washington State super value wine has been reviewed by (NW) and I before but another bottle opened merits another review.

Dark cherry color with a bouquet of cherry and dark berry fruit with a hint of green peppers and currants. In the mouth this wine is simply unreal with a fine structure and balance of a wine that costs many times as much as the $7.50 I paid for it. This wine is at its mature best though should hold well for another year anyway.

In the mouth it is brimming with flavor that is balanced with the fine tannins and chocolate, licorice, and currant flavors. The tastes linger with a nice solid finish. I have to put this up on the recommended wine list yet again! Raise a glass and buy several of these before they’re gone.
