Luscious aromas of dark berries lead to sumptuous elegant layers of blackberries, rich black cherries and hints of spice notes on the palate. The finish is silky, yet expressive.

After a “classic” Washington vintage in 2012, the summer of 2013 was one of the warmest in the past decade with favorable temperature conditions extending into fall.

Accelerated ripening due to the warm season was slowed by cooler temperatures and light rain events in September. This aided in hang time development resulting in stellar fruit characters and flavors.

About Reserve Wines

The Pinnacle of Winemaking Craftsmanship

Meticulously hand-crafted in our Petit Chai – a “winery-within-a-winery” – our Reserve wines represent the pinnacle of winemaking at Columbia Crest. Sourced from premier vineyard sites, less than one percent of the finest grape yields will qualify for our Reserve program, and these wines receive the same hands-on care and attention-to-detail associated with the world’s most exclusive boutique wineries.
