Been a while since I've had a CC and their wines remain absolutely rock solid, almost unbelievably so. Oak, vanilla and cherry are on offer but the balance and richness are what make these wines stand out. Undoubtedly still one of the best values to be found.
good value at $8. Typical sugary style for low end Washington cab. BUT has some good qualities--nice berry profile, soft tannins provides backbone and decent finish. Not a 90, as rated by wine spectator!

(Columbia Crest Grand Estates Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley) An aromatically intriguing wine with mint, dried sage, plum, berry, cherry, and rich milk chocolate riding over a layer of smokiness that would make you swear there’s Syrah in the bottle but there’s not. The palate is soft and chocolaty with abundant cherry flavors, flattening out toward the finish initially before ramping up with a few hours open. 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Malbec. Aged 16 months in oak (33% new). 13.5% alcohol. Sample provided by winery.
