Columbia Crest Walter Clore Private Reserve Columbia Valley Red Wine 2007 Wine Review (NW)
Ripe boysenberry and blackberry with some spice on the nose
Full bodied on the palate
Dark chocolate, kirsch, and coconut on the finish
This is a beautiful wine from Columbia Crest. It's very good, rich, flavorful, and layered. Known for their large quantities of well made and inexpensive wine, the Walter Clore Private Reserve is a much smaller production red blend from the Columbia Valley in Washington. Made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot, it has all the stuff you expect from a reserve wine and is ready to drink now. Expect to pay around $30, and raise a glass!
