Columbia Crest Grand Estates Syrah 2001 wine review by (PB)
This Washington State winery produces nice value wines across the board. This Syrah is one of the least I have had but in fairness, it is a bit old for this type and style of wine.
It is a mature red with dark berry bouquet. The palate is a bit awkward and confused. It has thin flavor but actually improves a bit on opening. Not a bad in quaff. Don't judge this Columbia Crest on this review; they produce solid wines--period!
