#1 Wine of the Year in 2009 by The Wine Spectator
2005 Columbia Crest Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve -- Sold out over a year ago.
"Ripe in flavor, with a vivid array of black currant, blackberry, violet, black tea and black pepper aromas and flavors that zoom through to a long, expressive finish. Shows subtlety in the layers of complex flavor against a refined structure. Tannins are present but nicely contained. Best from 2010 through 2015. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 5,000 cases made. –HS"
-- Rated 95/100 The Wine Spectator

"Near perfect conditions" -- The Wine Spectator
"Superb fruit from select Columbia Valley Vineyards and a blend of new American and French oak barrel aging offer this Cabernet Sauvignon pronounced cherry aromas and a rich chocolate bouquet. This intense, complex wine presents a well balanced, lingering finish. 5,000 cases made."
