What the Experts say:  Columbia Crest has risen from strength to strength since emerging in 1983, and Vintages customers have fallen in love with this focused and appealing Cab. Smooth, generous and fruity with chocolate and coffee notes. Try with coffee-and-porter-braised brisket.

What do I think:  Just love going to Christmas dinners when there are other wino’s in the room!  Another that caught me off guard, don’t generally look to Washington for wine – better start.   Smooth, full bodied with a silky finish.
