Columbia Crest Two Vines Merlot-Cabernet Sauvignon wine review by (PB)
This 5 year old bulk produced wine by one of the most reliable and value making wineries in the country does it again. While showing some maturity in the hue, the bouquet is spicy on red berries that are ripe and oozing plump plummy fruit.
In the mouth the wine is full of toasty fruit with solid palate with hints of cocoa and espresso. An $8 wine should not be this good. This Washington State winery just puts out "best buy" wines year after year. All I can say is, raise a glass of this new world bargain.
