The nose opens with sweet fruits, cream brulée, and syrah's pepper notes. Powerful extracted fruits fill the palate and follow through the long finish. The natural acids are clean and connect with smooth tannins. Like the neighboring Horse Heaven Hills cabernets, this wine will develop its perfume fully by the seventh year of age, and remain youthful until fifteen years old. I know from experience, this wine will have a long life in your cellar of twenty years or more.

Wine Enthusiast

From the winery's Phinny Hill vineyard, the Columbia Rediviva is 48% Cabernet Sauvignon and 52% Syrah. Complex and satiny, it's a riveting wine, inky and bursting with a sensuous mix of berry, cassis, mocha, loam, cinnamon and spice. Tremendous density and depth; despite its youth the wine curls around the tongue like thick smoke, showing more and more detail.

Score: 96. —Paul Gregutt, May 01, 2011.

Wine Advocate

The 2007 Columbia Rediviva Phinney Hill Vineyard is made up of 52% Syrah and 48% Cabernet Sauvignon. Opaque purple-colored, it proffers a perfume of sandalwood, meat, game, Asian spices, lilacs, and blueberry. Rich, opulent, layered, and dense, this full-bodied, pleasure-bent wine will evolve for 4-5 years and offer prime drinking from 2014 to 2027.

Score: 93. —Jay Miller, August 2010.

Wine Spectator

Polished, round and complex, this is distinctive and generous with its dark berry, chocolate and pomegranate flavors, melding seamlessly as the finish carries on smoothly. Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2017.
