2010 Columbia Crest Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon  

reg $44.99 / $34.99 PRE-SALE

 

Highest Rating EVER for Columbia Crest Cabernet Reserve from the Wine Advocate.  And Another great review from the Wine Spectator.

 

Not only did the wine itself get a great review - but the 2010 vintage was the best in WA state since 2005 - the same year that Columbia Crest Reserve was named the Wine Spectator #1 Wine of the Year.

 

Meticulously hand-crafted in their Petit Chai - a "winery-within-a-winery" - the Reserve wines represent the pinnacle of winemaking at Columbia Crest. Sourced from premier vineyard sites, less than one percent of the finest grape yields will qualify for the Reserve program, and these wines receive the same hands-on care and attention-to-detail associated with the world's most exclusive boutique wineries.

 

Crafted in a classic Bordeaux style and sourced from low yielding vineyards within the best sub-appellations of the Columbia Valley, the wine is defined by an enticing bouquet of spice and cacao, balanced flavors of dark fruits and caramel, refined tannins and a lingering, seductive finish.

 

Wine Advocate 92:  "The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (87% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance Merlot) is straight-up beautiful, with cassis, black raspberry, licorice, graphite and hints of chocolate all emerging from the glass. Full-bodied, layered and pure, with a rocking texture and building tannin, enjoy it over the coming decade or more."

"Northstar Merlot knocked it out of the park."  Wine Advcoate

  

Wine Advocate 93 - The 2010 Merlot Columbia Valley gives up a fabulous perfume of ripe black fruits, plum, asphalt, licorice, tar and assorted meatiness to go with a full-bodied, seamless and elegant feel on the palate. A blend of 78% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot that spent 18 months in 95% French oak (57% new). it opens up beautifully in the glass, has building tannin and a great finish. It will continue to shine through 2025.
