Columbia Crest "Grand Estates" Merlot 2007 review by (PB)
Red with slight bricking in the glass.
Bouquet--Subdued red berry fruit aromas with slight menthol, black pepper, and blueberry(?)
Palate--Mature tannins on a fully integrated wine that is approaching plush and drinking at peak maturity. Expressive berries with slight espresso base.
Drinking REALLY well so raise a glass of this value wine that runs around $11.
Columbia Crest just does wine right at all price points--always reliable and always a value.
