2007: 88 Points - Paul Gregutt, Wine Enthusiast: "The Grand Estates Merlot holds center court in the vast Columbia Crest portfolio. This new release, which has received extra bottle age, is seamless, smoky, supple and seductive. Exotic sandalwood and Asian spices weave from the nose into the palate, wrapped around broad black cherry and blackberry fruit flavors. A darker streak of black olive and licorice runs… "

2007: 87 Points - Harvey Steiman, Wine Spectator: "Light on its feet, with a polished feel to the dark berry, prune, star anise and roasted meat flavors, fading slightly on the finish. Drink now through 2012."


Wine maker notes
A blend of 85% Merlot, 7% Syrah, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Classic Merlot aromas of spice, blackberry and cocoa carry through the palate of this complex artisanally crafted wine. The balance of oak and black fruits creates a velvety, seductive finish.
Review
Top 100 Value of the Year and Best Buy "This bright, satisfying merlot leads with scents of cranberry and red cherry, accented by a touch of herb. Its flavors are fresh and lifted by fine acidity. A balanced wine to pour with lean roast beef."
89 Points
