Columbia Crest "Vineyard 10" 2005 wine review by (PB)
This blend from the kings of value wine is a blend of Syrah, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a light medium garnet hue with a confused nose of black cherry/berry /strawberry with milk chocolate after it opens.
In the mouth the wine has bold flavors up front that fade quickly. It is somewhat odd but drinkable being made in the popular style of a somewhat sweet palate. Syrah is the predominant characteristic. Light up the grill and throw on some burgers with this wine and raise a glass.
