Columbia Crest Cabernet Sauvignon (2004)

gre_cabsauv_btlsht_webTom brought home this large bottle (1.5 L) of Cabernet from the grocery store one night when he was concerned we were running low on mid-week wines. We are having it tonight (Thursday) after a demanding day at work and teaching a night class. In fact, Tom just left to pick up a pizza because it has been a long day and we want to curl up and watch the vice-president debates without me having to cook. (By the way, it is definitely becoming snuggle weather in Michigan; feels cold and damp tonight.)

This wine is a decent mid-week quaff. There is a good deal of vanilla and fruit on the palate. The tannins are sluggish. All in all, a good choice for a pizza and debate evening on a cold Michigan evening.

    We’re actually drinking the same wine at the Clarey house tonight. Cheers…and who ‘won’ the debate?

  2. Tom & Melody Says:

    Hi Janet! Glad we were on the same wave length last night! In my opinion, Joe won! But I’m not sure Tom would agree with me. Regardless, it was a good debate-watching wine, don’t you think? –Melody–

  3. Tom & Melody Says:

    Hi Janet. I think this Columbia Crest is quite a nice everyday wine. (We got the 1.5l bottle for about $12.)

    I think the debate was roughly a tie. Neither had major gaffes, and neither dominated.

    They both fell into he said/she said on “He voted for that,” “No, he didn’t.” I think the audience tunes out on that.
