Columbia Crest Two Vines Vineyard 10 Red Wine (2005)

Columbia Crest Two Vines Vineyard 10 Red Wine 2005It is a beautiful June Saturday evening. We started the evening with a refreshing gin and tonic with plenty of fresh-squeezed lime. Now, we are having a glass of this Columbia Crest Two Vines Vineyard 10 Red Wine 2005, a delicious blend of Syrah, Sangiovese, and Cabernet Sauvignon. This Washington State blend is luscious and fruity. The nose is a delicate whiff of vanilla and cloves. The taste is plums and spice. Tom purchased this wine for about $8 from Polly’s (our local grocery store).

I harvested some lettuce from my little garden for our salad tonight. I am also marinating pork chops, which we will grill. I have brown rice steaming now. Cheers and happy summertime!

    Was just enjoying some Columbia Crest Cabernet Sauvignon Two Vines 2005, and ran across your post.

    I LOVE this wine, especially at a $5.99 sale price… and just had to post what a great picture that is of Tom and Melody on the page.

    Cheers!

    Hi,
    I am in St. Louis. Our local supermarket on sale this wine for $6.1 incl. tax. I just finished the tasting.

    I think it is better to chill it 1hr in fridge and keep the wine below 20C. Rich plum with some vanilla hints. Lots of spicy, but if the wine is over ca. 22C, it start to have some wired smell and the wine taste a bit too acid.

    Personally, I think it is good with BBQ and some smoky stuffs. Good for party wine as well.

    At the end, I think this 2005 is a bit down now. It should be better last summer or so.

    May the Vino be with us.

    Cheers,
    SC
