Seattle Wine Blog

This blog is dedicated to commentary on all aspects of wine, especially short entries to help you find the best wines without the usual hype and spin. These are my frank, independent opinions, usually based on tasting wine at a public event, off the shelf or at the winery.

Wine Of The Week - 2003 Columbia Crest Two Vines Chardonnay

Columbia Crest continues it's winning ways with this Two Vines Chardonnay. The Two Vines series is the least expensive from Columbia Crest, continuing the tradition of fine wine making exemplified by the Grand Estates series and the Reserve wines. At each pricepoint these wines deserve your attention. Even though the Columbia Crest winery in Paterson is the size of a factory, they still manage to pay careful attention to the winemaking process. The Two Vines is light, simple, and easy - the perfect summer wine. It is dry and crisp moderated by the suave buttery flavors of oak. A winemaking tour de force for the price. This wine is available everywhere including gas stations and convenience stores. The official price is around $9, but you shouldn't pay more than $8 and it can be found on sale for $6.
