At Columbia Crest we pride ourselves on delivering handcrafted, superior-quality small-lot wines, as well as affordable everyday Washington wines. Our first release in 1984 started a tradition that has established us as one of America’s most popular and fast-growing wineries. Estates draws its distinctive intensity and attention to detail from prime vineyards in eastern Washington’s Columbia Valley.
Our winemaking team creates astonishing wines true to the varietals’ expression of this region — luxuriant while vibrant, with a balance that begins in the vineyards and is enhanced in the cellar.
Aromas of vanilla bean, coffee bean, and dark cherries lead to a medium bodied palate accented by dark chocolate covered pomegranate. The supple finish offers silky tannins with hints of dark chocolate and spice.
