Columbia Crest

This wine delivers an enticing bouquet of spice, anise and rose petals. On the palate, a perfect balance of cherry, berry and cocoa flavors lead to a powerful and complex finish.

Wine Spectator

Chewy with tannin, but bursting with fresh currant and plum, sneaking in hints of mint and black tea as the finish lingers. A graceful wine that has miles to go. Best from 2013 through 2018. 6,600 cases made.

Score: 93. —Harvey Steiman, May 31, 2012.

Wine Advocate

The 2008 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon contains 14% Merlot in its blend and was subject to the identical elevage as the 2007. Pain grille, mineral, spice box, incense, violets and assorted black fruits lead to a wine with a similar issue as its older sibling, a moderate austerity on the palate. It, too, has some aging potential so the wine could fill out with additional bottle age, but that is a bit of a gamble.

Score: 89+. —Jay Miller, August 2011.
