Columbia Crest "Grand Estates" Merlot 2003 wine review by (PB)
Columbia Crest's step above their production level table wine is Grand Estates. It always runs around $10-$11 and is always really good. This is no exception.
It is an intense deep purple with a cranberry colored rim on the pour and tilt. The bouquet is typically rich in varietal aromas with a nice accent of dill and licorice.
In the mouth this wine is just a full flavored fruit forward wine that goes down easily. It is a little bold so pair it with something robust. At this price, you should be buying a case for your everyday drinking pleasure. After all, "Life is too short to drink bad wine!"
